Happy Tuesday Y'all!
The weather is icky today - over-cast and looking like the bottom will drop out any minute, so I decided to play along with CC218 at SCS since the colors are bright and cheery! The sketch came from LPS's Monday sketch challenge. I just got these Lily at the Beach stamps yesterday in the mail and could not wait to rip them open and get inky with them!
I was little skeptical and then saw a few samples and decided I LOVED it!
This is a great sketch too and one I am sure I will use over and over.
I colored her with my Copics, masked her and then sponged Desert Sand (CTMH) and Cool Caribbean. I used a SU Scallop punch to create the cloudy background. Used my trusty oval nesties to punch and layer - really wish I came up with the idea for these!! The two background blocks were run through my CB with the Swirls and dots folders. I then, added some orange stickles to all of the swirls. I stamped the sentiment, cut out and popped up and of course, added some more stickles! A beachy-girl can still have bling, right? ATS carries this awesome ribbon by May Arts - you have to see this stuff in person to see how shimmery, etc. it is! The colors are just beautiful.
I still need to learn how to create a 'tanned' look with my copics - Lily looks a bit pasty to be a total beach babe - any color suggestions, youtube links, tutorials on this would be greatly appreciated!
Here are the copics I used:
