Fun In The Sun


Today’s card is another fun summer card (guess I wasn’t quite ready for Fall).  I used one of the Michelle Perkett digital stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Molly.  I printed her in black and colored her with alcohol markers.  Though it doesn’t show very well in the picture, her towel is covered with four different colored flocking (Autumn Sparkle Sparkle N Soft, Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft, Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft, and Turquoise Flocking).  I also popped up a few of the flowers on her bathing suite. 

The sparkling background is created using VersaMark ink and the Direct To Paper technique.  Then I sprinkled on some Hit the Beach embossing powder and heat set.  I created the yellow flower with a die and shaped it with a stylus.  Then I punched the word “Fun” out from a second printed image, using a flower punch.

Full details on making this card can be found in the SNS Gallery here.

This image can also be purchased as an individual rubber stamp or part of the new Beach Babes set.

Hugs,

E. Marie
