Snorkel Girl!!


Her real name is Beach Girl Patti, but I like Snorkel Girl too!! Don'tcha love her floaty thing and mask?? For this card I used ALL High Hopes Stamps....I'm having such fun with them!!!

I took Beate's Sketch Challenge and this image was perfect with the square card layout! I'm really likin' the square ones lately. I started out stamping the beach girl image on Whisper White in black Stazon ink and then also stamping the Fillable Beach Scene on a separate piece of cardstock. (I have great plans for fooling around with the beach scene and other stamps too!!) Then I coloured in the images using my SU markers in Blush Blossom, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Bordering Blue and Bashful Blue. Then I used my Crystal Effects on the waves, Patti's snorkeling mask and her flippers...not sure if you can make it out in the photo. Also I added some sparklies to the sand,sandcastle and her bathing suit with my Clear Sakura Stardust gel pen. I layered it on Chocolate Chip, then cut out Patti and pop dotted her onto the scene! The So Saffron piece is stamped with the Flip Flops in So Saffron. Then I used Mellow Moss for the card base which is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The patterned paper is from the Shangri La Palette by DMD which I got at Target. I just love the colour combinations in that pack. Then I took this verse stamp and just inked up the 'summer days' part with my Chocolate Chip marker and stamped it right on the patterned paper. I used the ticket corner punch and added some blue eyelets. At a crop once I heard a woman say "Eyelets are so 'old school'!"..... and yes, she knew I was using them and I could hear her. How rude, right? Personally I think that people who say stuff like that are Snooty McSnobbypants!! *snort* I love my eyelets, especially my SU ones because they fold like buttah, especially with my Crop-a-dile and they match everything!!! I don't care what people say.........I THINK EYELETS ARE COOL!!! *giggle*

I think eyelets are kewl too. Besides, what's wrong with old school. Admit it, we all like a little Elvis now and then and he is so old school too! Awesome card by the way. I love your snorkel girl!

Love your card. I've checked out High Hopes Stamps since visiting your blog and I think they have some great stamps. I like their style and I've already picked out a bunch that I want. TFS and introducing me to some new stamps.

Great card! I love the look of the square cards too but I'm afraid to go there. What do you do for envelopes? Or are you just hording these cards and not mailing them out?

Just this weekend when I was cropping I realized I hadn't used my eyelets in forever - so I got them out and used them. We were at a CM crop where they sort of frown on putting metal on pages and the pounding of eyelets, so I was glad they were SU eyelets and I could use my handpunches to set them quietly.
