Jade In The Sun

Monika from Creative With Monika has put me on to another challenge and they had this cute little girl as a free digi from Lauretta's Digital Stamps to use for their challenge this week. There's also a challenge to make your own DP, so I had 2 goes at this. I already had the sheet made that I cut the 3 strips from using the Ink, Spray, & Smash technique that I found on Splitcoast Stampers by: Faith Hofrichter aka Markie's Mom. Then I decided I wanted to carry on with a sea shell motif in the background so I stamped the sea shells on tan card stock with a 3 color Brilliance Ink Pad and heat set it. I hope you can see the shine of the shells.
This was a fun digi to color with my Copic markers and this time I used real sand that I got in a jar from Hobby Lobby, glued on with Amy's Glittering Glue(good stuff). I dabbed at the sand with a light tan marker because I had some white holes showing. Next time I will color under where the sand goes first with the light tan marker then I won't have holes showing.
3 Challenges:
Supplies: White Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" The Paper Studio, Papers: Georgia Pacific card stock, glossy card stock, tan card stock, Stamps: digi stamp-Lauretta's Digital Stamps, Inkadinkado-97521 Coastal/Maritime, Ink: Brilliance Pigment Ink Pad-Peacock, Copic markers, Sharpie Poster Paint markers-silver, Stampin Up-ticket punch, Michael Richards-silver metal dots, Sand-Hobby Lobby, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
