Here's one of two cards I made for Scrappy go Lucky's blog using Art Impressions Beach Babes stamps, available from the store.
I stamped the image direct onto cardstock, then airbrushed around it with yellow for sand, and some sky blue. I stamped the image again onto white card, and coloured the 'babes' in, then cut each one out and stuck it onto the base image with foam pads. I love the sentiment
Happy 29th birthday from your 110 lb friend!
As I coloured them in, these ladies took on a life of their own, and developed distinct personalities. Edna, in the purple really doesn't like Madge in the green swimsuit - Madge goes a lovely shade of brown, whilst Edna just goes reddish. Brenda on the right doesn't really like any of them, she is only there for the beer, and is lost in a little alcohol induced world of her own. None of them like
Aggie in the turquoise, she is the only one without a cocktail glass, they only ask her along because she doesn't drink and will drive them all home when they are smashed. Poor Aggie loves them all, bless her, she thinks she is so lucky to have such glamorous friends.

It's been a whirlwind week, as well as helping out at the Olympia craft show, we did sterling duty as babysitters, which was a joy of course, and saw all the family. Spirits were dampened a little (well, a lot) when we got home last night and found that the dratted leak into my craft cupboard which we thought was fixed has started up again. I had to throw away a whole black sack full of soggy papers and ribbons, and even more annoyingly the water had ruined an almost complete project for a magazine commission. Hey ho, back to the drawing board......
Tomorrow sees the start of a super ProMarker giveaway. Be sure to pop by. See you then
