About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Some beach.....

......some where!!!

I had fun creating this card. 
BBTB2's challenge was to make something 'beach' inspired.

I think this one works well!!!!

Card deets:

Basic folded card stock base of a light blue.
Kraft card stock torn to mimic sand.
Used Suburbia cartridge to cut the woman silhouette image; once with black card stock and once with a patterned yellow DSP. 
I cut away most of the image to leave just a swimsuit to layer on top. 
I then cut out the chair and umbrella from Life's a Beach cart. and made them large enough to layer the woman onto them. It was very easy using my Gypsy. 
I had this clear stamp set that is for different types of flower petal, but to me they looked like surfboards.  After stamping them with black staz-on I colored them using my Bic markers.
Then sentiment is from another stamp set. 
Used a few dimensionals for some texture.

All in all....
I think it turned out quite brilliantly!!!!

Love it!!!

Until later, beach dwellers......Gotta split.....TFL!!!!!
