Booty Call and Beachy Fun

The One Stop Blog Hop at The Stamping Boutique was a fun one this time. We got to use the Summer Laundry Line image!


All the votes were placed in the comments section and the winner was #2, Kecia!


This is MY card for the Hop. The swimsuit is actually painted with Creative Inspirations paints and is quite shimmery and pretty, but it doesn't photograph well.


 Now we are on to Challenge #8 at
The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog.
The theme for the challenge is "Guy Cards". With Father's Day quickly approaching, it seems to be a pretty common theme that should get LOTS of entries!
Every body is making cards for their dad...
I used "Princess Jennifer Latte the Pirate" from The Stamping Boutique and no, I don't suppose this one will go to my dad. But it's DEFINITELY a "guy" card!
Here's a close-up of Miss PJL!
I do all my coloring with Prismacolor pencils and for the background on this one, I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a paint brush with lots of water. After my image was colored, I ripped the edges of the paper, inked with Walnut stain and put big drops of water in the ink and basically "spread it around" to soak in.
I'm really happy with how shiny her black books look... getting that look with pencils was a little challenging but I LOVE the end result.


And my third project for The Stamping Boutique this week features the "Coeopsis" image. 
I made this one for the June Month Long Challenge at the Latte Lounge.
Our theme this month is "Nature and Outdoors".
I love the challenges at the Latte Lounge because every week, we add a new "Twist" to keep the challenge fresh and interesting!


The papers in the background are digital papers from JLJ Designs, in the brand new "Back to Nature" pack.


It's been a busy few days, but I've had a blast working with all these images!


I hope you'll get a chance to stop in a see the "Guy Card" challenge at TSB and the "Nature/Outdoors" challenge at the "Lounge!"
I'll be lookin' for ya!
