I am not really feeling very chatty at the moment. I am still trying to process what happened in Boston yesterday. So I will just get to the deets on my card, and save my extraneous comments for another day.
I printed Olive and her sentiment on Make It Colour Blending Card and then colored the image with Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hat & Swimsuit: B12, B14, B16
Hat Band & Pail: RV23, RV25, RV29
Shovel: Y13, Y15, Y18
Starfish: W0, W2, W4
I added a bit of Ultra Fine Flower Soft to the sand under her feet. I chose DP from Best Creation, Inc. Splash Fun collection and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I added some shells to the design, as well as several die cuts.
Dies used were: Marianne Designs Sea Shells, Sea Side, and Pointy Circle Frame & Flower; Memory Box Big Splash Border. The sea shells and starfish die cuts were sponged with Stampin' Up ink. I was not happy with my coloring on this card, nor with the color that I got on my photo. I did try to touch it up, but the sky is actually bluer than shown. Oh well...some days are like diamonds and some days are like stones. Yesterday was definitely a stone day in so many ways.
Wishing you all a great rest of the week, and hoping you will join our challenge at TTCRD. Be sure to check out the latest issue of the magazine. There is a preview available in the video at the top right of my blog.
