Beach Babe...

Don't grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach. -Unknown

Surf's Up Dudes!!!! :) Ready for another little sneaky peeky?? I have been having a blast playing with these new releases! Hope you are enjoying the peeks!

Today I went Bright! It is summer and it is HOT so I pulled out this Sweet Surfer Girl and went bright. I used Lime Rickey paper, which didn't call to me when I first saw it, but has grown on me as I use it with fun images that need that touch of WOW. I used the Weekend Sketch Challenge for the layout (flipped it vertically) and colored her with Copics. You might notice that Elzy looks a Touch different this time around, a little more Teen than little girl...she is growing up a little I think!

No sentiment on the inside, just a touch of color and a few little swirl "waves" along the bottom...

Supplies:
Stamps: Surfer Girl (
Elzybells)
Paper: Lime Rickey (
Basic Grey,) White CS (PTI,) Textured Card (DCWV)
Ink:
Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers
Misc:
Sakura Stardust Pen, Foam Adhesive Dots, Deep Lagoon Jewel Sticker, Crystal Dots (colored with Copics to match,) Stardust Stickles

Make sure and come back tomorrow for another peek...the new stamps will be available Thursday on the
Elzybells Site! In the mean time make sure and check out what the other Elzybelles are up to, links are on the sidebar over there ----------->
