Be sure to leave your great creations with Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post on the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog! I can not wait to see what you create for our new challenge!
My first card today uses one of our new Sassy Gals Sassy Beach, I mean look at her, if you went to the beach and this is what you saw I am sure heads would turn. I think this image really is a lot of fun, when I saw her I knew that I had to ink this one up for our challenge today!
I do hope you check out what the rest of the Design Team created, you can see all the cards at the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, but for some more information on the all cards be sure to stop by all our great blogs and check them out. She screamed bright colors, so I pulled out my summer fun DP and a few brightly colored cardstock and got to work. I also pulled out some of my Prima flowers, I have a container with an assortment of all sorts of patterns, colors, sizes, and designs. I also have been organizing my room and found these great swarski crystals I got months ago while in NYC in the Fashion District, they have been missing since I got them and when I found them I just had to use them as the center of my flowers on this card, I think they finish the whole creation off nicely.
I also made a card using one of the images from the Character Cafe! This super cute couple walking the beach is perfect for the summer challenge! I pulled out my Koh0I-Noor Woodless Pencils and started coloring in this fun image, in fact I almost used Gemasol on this one and decided that I really liked the rough look of the colored pencils as they are. I pulled out circle nestabilities and lots of ribbon and got to work finishing this card off, I are pretty happy with the final result.
