Red, White & Blue at Loves Rubberstamps!

Hi Stampers!

I am back for my SECOND Post for the day! If  you are looking for my Crafty Sentiments Design Team Project just click here...

This week at Loves Rubberstamps we are doing a color challenge of Red, White & Blue! With Independence Day here in the US fast approaching, it seemed like a fitting theme :) You can go patriotic or just use the color scheme like I did for my piece.

I decided to use The Greeting Farm's Cheeky Beach. I love this line of stamps they are so cute and fun to color. I paper pieced her swimsuit and shoes with Royal Blue Glitter Paper. This was also my first time trying to create eye shadow using copics! I don't have very many colors yet so I kept it pretty light. That was scary adding it because if it didn't turn out well it I would have had to start coloring all over - LOL! But I am glad I tried because I think it turned out cute. Instead of coloring the flower in her hair I added a ribbon bow. My Sentiment is created using the Delicate Words Die from The Greeting Farm.

For my layout I chose to use the sketch from the Anyone For Anya challenge this week. I have to say that this sketch stumped me for quite awhile even though it looked pretty straight forward. I had a hard time figuring out what designer papers I wanted to have in the background. I think it took me longer to figure that out and how I wanted to do the corner decoration than it did to color my image - LOL! Here is the sketch...

I chose to us the strip at the bottom instead of the top corner and used rolled roses that I made with Night of Navy cardstock and placed them on top of flourish made with the Fancy Flourish Die-Namics. I added a pearl in the center using the Best Glue Ever and added some stickles to the edges for a little bling.

Here is a close up of my Cheeky Beach Cutie!

I used Copics and Spectrum Noir Markers to color her up.

Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Skin: SN FS2, E00, E11, E13, R20
Beach Ball - Spectrum Noir Reds
Lips - R59
Eyeshadow - E70
