Beachy Keen Monday!!


It's time for a card challenge that I do with my zany SCS friends. This week we were to use supplies that Frances (StampOwl) sent us. She gave us each this adorable penguin stamp and another *girl* penguin. We could use either, or both. She also sent us this fun DP. The other side of it is a pink/brown stripe. I couldn't match mine well enough, so I just used this side instead.

If you'd like to see the other ccee cards, click HERE.

I used a CD as a template to design my beach ball, and drew my own lines, cut out each individual section, and traced the odd ones onto the dp. All the edges are ink distressed with Walnut Distress Ink by Ranger. Now that I have the photo edited and uploaded, I realize there were some "extras" I was going to do and forgot....Bummer!!! Oh well, it took me quite a few photos to get this one, so I'm not starting over. The penguin image was cut out with the nestabilities circles and the scallops were chopped off by using a slightly smaller circle. I feel this gives it a more masculine feel. I brayered white SU craft ink over the embossed bg and heated white ep over it. The penguin is from Imaginisce, and the sentiment is from the Lizzie Anne designs "shore thoughts" set. Thanks for stopping by!!!!! ;o)
