For my project I've used Polka Dot Pals Roxie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, which is currently a digital stamp. You may not recognize her, since I've colored in some facial features. In addition to expanding her eyes with color, I've given her chubby cheeks, a nose and mouth. :D These images are cute the way they are, but I love how they look with faces too. So have fun with them and experiment a little.
In addition to playing with the eyes, I had some fun with the background too. The clouds were colored using this simple 4-step cloud tutorial HERE. Then the ocean was colored with the same color blues and I stroked horizontal lines from the lighter colors to darker colors (going from top to bottom). The sand was added with dots and even the starfish was an addition. Last, I added some ocean details with a white gel pen.
I'm not sure what I was thinking when I put the card together but I grabbed bits and bobs from all over my craft room. This was also the perfect chance to use the beach themed chipboard I have from Make it Crafty. I nabbed a bunch of packages before they were retired - I just love them!
Thanks for combing by today and I welcome any comments you have to share on this new style, the new release or even the facial features! Don't forget about the other projects by the design team and visit the LMMS Blog for all that inspiration!! Have a fabulous day! *Hugs
