Another Slider...

I got some new stamps in and then I checked out the new Rubbernecker challenge. I knew my new Stamps went well with the colors so for now I used some My Favorite Things stamps for today but latter in the week I'll give it a try with a rubbernecker stamp...



And of course I thought the colors are great for the beach.... You can find all the challenge info over on Jeanne's Blog Inky Paws.

Of course it is another slider and I had to make it a Birthday on for a Friend of mine... Her Birthday was yesterday and I'm a day late... I felt really bad but this card is just her style... She is a big beach fan. I'm dropping this in the mail to her tomorrow and hope she doesn't mind getting it a few days late. I loved making these cards they are so fun and easy to make once you make your first one...


I colored my image in with my copics and played alittle with my blender to tone some of the shading down... That blender pen makes a big difference with these markers. If anyone hasn't seen any of My Favorite Things stamps they are known for their headless women and yes she is headless here but I add the hat from the set to give the illusion that it is behind that big hat. I used a stampin dimensional to pop it and the beach poles up on the card. I actually used Faux layers on it too... using my nestie die of course and a copic... that brown layer is actually part of the same piece of cardstock as my main image...

Well I'm off today with my kids and the twins... It's Spring Break this week and I bet I do alot of late night stampin... Have a great afternoon...

Ink: Creamy Caramel, basic black, adirondack espresso

What a fabulous slider card you made! I love the dimension with the gull--and I wouldn't have known she didn't have a head if you hadn't of told me. I love the hat popped on there. Great job!
