Hello Sunshine!

Happy Wednesday, Y'all!

I am trying to turn over a new leaf and start working out again. I went this morning and I am already starting to pay for it!! My knees and calves are sore!! Oh well, no pain - no gain, right? I am really going to try to get in a routine, because I feel so much better when I do!

I loved CC218 so much, I had to make another card using those colors!

I am just in love with these new Pink Cat Studio stamps! This little mermaid is adorable. I colored her with my Copics and added some Eucalyptus Stickles on her scales and some Orange Stickles on the starfish in her hair. I cut it out using my new Deckled Rectangle Nestie and then sponged some Cool Caribbean around the edges. I layered her onto Summer Sun paper that I cut using nesties, ran through with my swirl CB folder and then sponged on some Desert Sand ink from CTMH. I layered this onto Kiwi Kiss that was run through with the dots CB folder and also sponged with Desert Sun as well as some VersaMark Dazzle ink in Champagne for some shimmer. The card base & tag are Only Orange which also got sponged with Desert Sun.

Here is a close-up of her shimmers:

I think I did a better job making her look a little tan. She's not quite so pasty this time! I still need to practice more shading, etc.

Here are the Copics used:

Supplies: Stamps - Lily @ the Beach - Pink Cat Studio; Ink - Memento, Cool Caribbean (SU), Desert Sun (CTMH), Versa Mark Dazzle Champagne; Paper - Whisper White, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, Only Orange; Accessories - Tag punch - SU, Nesties, Ribbon - Offray, Copics, Stickles - Eucalyptus & Orange, Dew Drops, Sponges, CB folders - Swirl & Dots

Have a great day!
