3 Hot Chicks


While cruising or "Blurffing" around the other day I stumbled across a fun tutorial by Suzanne Dean about how to create landscapes/backgrounds. You can see the tutorial HERE.

I used her technique to create this card... Not too sure that I did my landscape any justice but I do like these "hot chicks". I stamped and colored them first then cut them out and adhered them into their little beach scene. The sea shells were actually buttons but I cut off the little plastic loops and attached them with 3-D glue Dots. I didn't have an oval large enough to create a mask for my beach scene so I used a hinged metal box as my template for the blue cardstock. Clever?

The sketch I used is the monthly challenge from the Susana's Custom Art & Card Design Group over at Paper Craft Planet. This group and the Fans of Karen Lockhart Group are a couple of my favorite places to hang out. The gals are so welcoming, supportive and friendly. Not sure if there is a prize, hopefully one of the other gals will leave a comment and set me straight. Prize or no prize, it was a fun sketch.

If you visit me very often you are going to become very familiar with hearing me speak of Lockhart stamps and Susana's Custom Art & Card Design since my Guest Design Team spot officially begins April 1st. Check out Susana's Blog HERE

Don't forget to upload your cards for the Twisted Thursday challenge. As of right now there are less than 10 entries. Unbelievable odds of winning a free stamp. Some of the challenges that I enter have well over 1000. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me today. See you tomorrow.
