Summer Beach Babe

Hello Everyone!!!  It's CopicOz Challenge time again and this month the challenge is to create a Summer Themed Card!!  Summer is well and truly here for those of us living in Australia and I'm sure many are at the beach over the Christmas/New Year break!!!  For our friends in the Northern Hemisphere, perhaps this is just the challenge you need to escape the snow and cold that you have!!

The base is created of yellow bazzill, white and three pieces of October Afternoon Sidewalks DP.  The middle piece has been layered on another piece of white punched top and bottom with the MS Deco Fan border punch.  I've decided that I needed bright, happy colours for my sweet Beach Marci stamp, she's been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers (G20, G21, G24, Y21, Y35, Y38, RV55, RV63, RV66, E50, E51, E53, YR31, E000, E01, E11, R20).  I've cut her out with scissors and framed her with white (cut with Large Oval Nestabilities, lightly sponged with Summer Sky ink) and yellow (cut with Big Scallop Ovals Large Nestabilities).  To finish I've added a couple of blush pearls to the top corner and a sentiment from Flourishes' Sunflowers set to the bottom.

Stamps - Beach Marci (La La Land Crafts), Sunflowers (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Yellow Bazzill, White, October Afternoon Sidewalks DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Large Oval and Big Scallop Ovals Large Nestabilities, MS Deco Fan Border Punch, Scissors, Blush Pearls.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

It's funny to think of it being summer somewhere. I'm ready for it and winter has barely begun. Adorable card and so beautifully colored. Happy new year, Kathy!
