Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Release Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome everyone ! I’m so excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp in their blog hop this month celebrating their latest release!

I have a card to share with you featuring a new line of stamps to Simon’s website from Clever Girl Craftings. This stamp set is called Beach Beauties. These are some super fun and adorable images!

I really wanted to venture out into coloring different skin tones so after stamping the image in Obsidian Ink, I colored this image with copic markers.

I apologize the legs look a little “off” and it’s because I colored the face twice but forgot to go back over the legs so they appear a little lighter.

I also colored in the umbrella from the Seas and Greetings stamp set.

The background was created by ink blending Antique Linen and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. Then I trimmed the panel down to 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the Beach Beauties stamp set. I added the panel to an A2 size card base with foam tape for dimension.

I seriously adore the hair and this girl (and secretly wish I could do mine like that!)

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! If you are not familiar with the Clever Girl Craftings line, I highly recommend checking them out.

  1. What a cute, happy card!

  2. We are our own worst critics. Doubt
    anyone would have noticed the lighter
    legs – more light could be causing
    the lightness, not the artist not
    doing more shading. Great card.
    thanks for sharing
