Beach Bunny

ISS_BeachBunny_tbuThis is Beach Bunny, from the InStyle Stamps line of Beach Time Fun Digital Downloads. Isn’t she fun??

To match the color on both the bottle of suntan lotion and the sun (both buttons I purchased from Hobby Lobby in a “beachy” pack) I got out my Copics to see what would work best. On the towel, I went with my darkest yellow, an highlight of brown to match the bottle.

I added an Imaginisce sentiment, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, to make the white space go away, highlighted with More Mustard just as my main image panel is. My dp is by Prima, from their Eire collection. My card base is Basic Black, to complement her sunglasses and the ink color on the sentiment.

Colorful Flowers

CPCM_NinaBFlowers_tbuAren’t these flowers gorgeous?? NinaB drew them herself, and you can download them for free here. This is one talented lady, I’m telling you!

I printed the image in a large size, so I could really highlight the flowers and the quote from Charles Spurgeon – it is a wonderful quote! The card base is one of the pre scored cards from a pack. To keep it simple, I used Basic Black as my highlight layer. I got my Copics out and colored the flowers in bright colors, and used a couple of DaisyD’s rhinestone blings to center two of the flowers. I really tried to leave it simple so the flowers themselves would be the focus!!
