Let's Play

Oh my heavens.. I have to tell you all how much fun I am having with these paper smooches stamps. I received some for my birthday, and ever since then I have been hooked on playing with them.. :)
So I made this little beach scene, and it was so much fun to create. I used a few different sets.. so I will start left to right. For the "sand castle" I used the "Sugar Rush" set. Yep.. see that cute little drink with the straw.. I used that as the outline. For the Seagull and the rest of the "fishy" elements I used the Surf and Turf set. For the Sun I used 2 different sets. The Boob Tube set. I used one of the TV's for the shape, and then I used the Hang Up's set for the "Rays" of the sun. The Sentiment comes from Chubby Chums set. I thought it was perfect "Let's Play" since I am sure Seagulls would rather "eat" the crab then "play" I think that would put a smile on someones face. I also placed pop dots under the sandcastle, seagull, and the crabs to make the "pop" off the page.. :) Wish me luck on my GDT and the new PS Spark Challenge.. HUGS

I used copic markers to color in my creation I must say this is one of my favorites for now :) I hope you enjoy looking at this as much as I enjoyed making it.. HUGS

I used the colors from Paper Smooches.. sketch the one with the waves and turned it.. I added a few more images to make it work for me too :)
I am also entering this into the PS GDT call :) how fun..
