Yes, summer is still here!

Yes, summer is still here although school starts in less than a month.  Today I am playing in the  Challenge #93 –Summer with Tiddly Inks

I thought Wryn Beach Babe would make a nice last summer hurrah.  I am also using  the deconstructed sketch DS64 for my layout.


I started by printing my digital image on Flourishes Classic White card stock and coloring it in with Copic markers.   I shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with oms.


I then cut out the image with the Classic Circles large die from Spellbinders and with the die still in place, I sponged the outer edge of the image with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Wheat.   I also used a Big Scalloped Circles die for the mat.    The border was created with a Martha Stewart border punch.  I used a sheer pin dot ribbon and tied the bow off to the side so I wouldn’t hide her cute feet!  I also added a tiny starfish charm to the ribbon.   The patterned paper is from Heidi Grace, the Beyond the Sea line. 

Have a great Thursday!
