Lily at the Beach - TIOT Style!

Good morning!! Welcome to another Try It Out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week (TIOT27) we have a sketch challenge for you! You can see the sketch (above), and all of the DT's projects are featured on the SCACD blog.

Here is mine!

How can you not just want to cuddle that Lily from Pink Cat Studio!? She's just the cutest. This image is from the Lily at the Beach plate, available for the amazing price of $12.50 from SCACD! I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added some highlights with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done (of course!). That is such a great trick to add pop and highlighting! Cut and matted using Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. There is December Sky Shimmerz Blingz on her mask for that "wet & sparkly" look (which is hard to capture on film).

Thanks for stopping by! We just heard from Susana that she has added a bunch of new items to the store, so swing by and check it out when you have a chance! I hope you all have time to get sketchy with us at SCACD this week! Oh, and last thing, don't forget...


We have a release date!! The new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamps will be available for purchase THIS Friday, July 17th!!! Wow wow wow!! There is, of course, BLOG CANDY, details are up on the SCACD store blog Follow Your Heart TODAY, so you need to check that out. Who doesn't love candy -- and when Susana does candy she is SERIOUS!

Also, the DT will also be having a sneak preview BLOG HOP on Thursday, July 16th! See you back here then!
