Surfin USA

Leigh O'Brien posted an awesome sketch for the 3rd installment of TCP Tuesdays. I just couldn't help myself....I had to break out last summers swanky release and some fun patterned paper from Flair Designs to play along with the challenge.

I used Hula Cat, Poochie Frankie (which I just received in the mail Thursday), and Sprinkle Annette as the main images on the card. They were all colored with reinkers and Copic Spica Glitter pens and then given a little sprinkle of dazzling diamonds for good measure (except Poochie has some of my coveted Art Institute glitter for some shimmery water to surf on). I colored Sprinkle Annette's sunglasses with a Sakura Glaze pen (makes those sunglasses look like a hip pair of Ray-Bans). All images were cut out and embossed with my square and scalloped square nestabilities and then mounted to the patterned paper with dimensionals. I then doodled a little polka dot border with my black Copic Spica glitter pen around all images. I placed two orange eyelets on either end of the image panel using my Crop-O-Dile (they just get a little lost in the patterned paper). All I can say is making this card made me happy! I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for some warmer weather!

Speaking of making me happy...I also just ordered the brand spanking new It's A Mod, Mod World clear set from TCP! I already have some of the images in the set, but I couldn't pass up the images that I DIDN'T have! I think Alma herself said it best when she posted a comment to my Splitcoast gallery for last weeks entry, "You can never have too many TCP stamps"! LOL!
