Beach Babes ???

     If you've read the post title and had a chance to glance at the image, I hope by now you're laughing!  I think these two darling, but aging, beauties are just so much fun.  The image is a digital from Sparkle n Sprinkle (also available in rubber.)

Sketch is by Sketch N' Dies
which happens to be sponsored this week by Sparkle n Sprinkle..

     I used ProMarkers to color the image and added Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter to both the sand and the die cut piece above the image.  I used a glue pen to just scribble lightly across the sand and used brush on glue for the die cut piece.  You can see how the amount of glue used can make a huge difference in how the glitter looks on the card.  The image is cut with one of my dies from Spellbinders and the sentiment piece and piece above the image are cut with a smaller die from the same set.

     These two 'babes' must be having a marvelous time telling stories and sharing jokes.  I guess I must be the one in purple since that's my fav color.  She certainly has my shape!  ROFL  Not sure who the dear friend is but it probably represents someone who loves blue as a fav color.  :-D  Any takers?

     There will be another post this morning.  I've been busy in my craft room and have a few things to share with you over the next three or four days.  I hope your weekend has started well and that you're safe from the hurricane if you're on the East Coast and can manage to stay in the shade if you're out West where the heat is overwhelming.  Either of those things sounds like a great reason to stay inside and craft.   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
