Beach Babes!


Well I have finally used the last of my Art Impressions rubber stamps.  I have to say I always have a good chuckle when I am coloring the images.  This one had me humming the song “Beach Babes” by the Beach Boys the whole time I was working on it! The girls remind me, of me and my friends!  I intend to use this for a birthday card.  I still have to finish the inside.  I seem to always put it off and get stuck doing a punch at one time…..big sigh!

I used my trusty Copics to color the image and layered it on pink and then green card stock by Simon Says Stamp.  They have beautiful colors and the card stock is heavy weight.  It stands tall and doesn’t warp in the middle….I just love it!!  The flowers are cut using a Memory box die called “Petal Party”.   I used the MS leaf punch for the branches under the flowers.  The designer papers are from two different paper packs.  One is Mariposa Matstack and the other is Echo Park – Happy Days.  Brads and ribbon are both by Crafts.
