By the Sea...

It's challenge time at Mo's, and this week DT member, Elaine, set the tone for a beach/summer themed card. So this image of Bella 'n Bronte was perfect. Actually, Bella's looking a little pink around the edges... and not too happy at that. Better get that sunscreen handy!


I created the sun using a Sizzix flower die and cut off the pointy tips to better emulate sunrays. I lightly sponged with Pebble's orange chalk and it only took two tries 'til I had the face the way I wanted. And here's a close-up...



Today's challenges:
Crafty Ho's Challenge - Fun in the Sun
Gingersnap Creations - Heat
Dare U 2 Digistamp - The Great Outdoors
Pear Tree Designs - Animals
Rosie Dee's - Summer Birthdays


Thanks for stopping by friends! Have a fantastic day... and be safe in all you do.
