Penny's #288: Anything Goes

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! So crazy around here this summer - it is FLYING by. I can't believe it'll be August in a few days. Still need to get out for school shopping....plus all the activities the kids wanted to do this summer! Yikes!

At least  So let's get on with the new challenge this week over at Penny's Challenge!  This week's sponsors are Lacy Sunshine and Lemon Shortbread. As always, they are offering a wonderful prize to lucky stampers!


Here is my project, featuring "Susie Boo Beach Girl" from Lacy Sunshine! Now, normally I FAIL at coloring scenes like this. My skills don't quite extend to creating the amazing background work in addition to the sweet faces. But I just could NOT resist this little beachcomber, so I had to try. Except for that blank sky in the back, I think she turned out pretty well. I guess it's an overcast day at the beach...good for redheaded skin, right?? ;) Well, ya can't really go wrong with a Lacy image any way you do it!




Do you see how she's in kind of a Polaroid frame? That's part of an awesome Fun Stampers Journey die set that I've been reaching for a lot lately. So versatile and fun! My little one is colored up with Copics, and all the adorable polka dots, along with her bracelet, were done with Nuvo Crystal Drops. The washi tape and sentiment stamp are also from FSJ, Kaisercraft rhinestones, one little layer of foam tape to pop up our "picture". Darice cloud folder. Hand doodled the border on the frame. Cardstock is Neenah and FSJ.

Great job Jennifer! I think you did a fab job. My sky is over cast as well...LOL. I am not that great at that either yet :)

LOVING that die as well! Nicely done 'teamie'!

Di said...

Love this card Jennifer and your colouring is great! I hesitate with sky colouring too but find that a template with a cloudy edge, blue distress inkpad (usually Tim Hotlz 'Tumbled Glass' plus a duster brush is a good way to tackle them.

Here's a link to one way I do the clouds:http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/up-up-and-away.html

Hope you don't mind me sharing! Sometimes you'd need to mask off your stamped image, sometimes you can get round it by carefully watching where you add the clouds :)

Thank you for joining in with Cuttlebug Mania!

Hugs, Di xx (DT)

Oh Happy Day indeed!! She looks like she's having a great time on the beach!! I love the FSJ die cut...I have it also and it is so versatile! Works beautifully on your card! Great job with the coloring. I use a "Picasso" tool to make my clouds....you can find it at Dreamweaver stencils and I just take a light blue ink on a sponge and run it over the curved edge onto the paper. A little ink goes a long way!! Thanks so much for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge....really enjoyed your card!!
