Is it July already? I'm not ready for the heat, but then again I'm ready to hurry up and get summer and the heat done with! Just sayin. Heat is so not my thing. BUT I do love making summery cards and I just had to pull Beach Mae back out from Some Odd Girl to play along with this month's SOG sketch challenge.
I started out by printing Beach Mae on Neenah Solar white cs and then coloring her with my Spectrum Noir markers, pulling color inspiration from the paper line that I picked...Tropical Travelogue from Graphic 45. All my papers were distressed with Tim Holtz inks (Scattered Straw, Antique Linen, and Tumbled Glass). The wave and Honu (Sea Turtle) die cuts are by Memory Box.
Here's a closer shot of Mae and her adorable yellow polka-dot (not) bikini! OK, so if I'm too old fr a bikini she doesn't get one either, right? Fair is fair.
And here's the sentiment panel stamped in Versafine Onyx ink with Feel Sand stamp by Stampendous! The piece was cut using a Frame die from QuicKutz. Here's my torn sand border above the waves :)
And if you're feeling crafty here's this months sketch challenge...you have all month!
