Ctd50 Bathing Beauties

Michelle Zindorf and Kittie I am NOT!!!LOL!! I wanted to play along in the Color throwdown this week. The colors are real red, tempting turquoise, and kiwi kiss. Love these colors!! I pulled out a Rubbernecker image I borrowed from Mama that has yet to see ink! She has probably had it now for 2 yrs and it was feelin unloved so it had to come visit me to get some love!LOL! So after coloring up the ladies using copics I was feelin froggy and decided to try to sponge some sand underneath them! That worked okay so I stamped the itty bitty background image using close to cocoa. That worked too!! Alright!! So I went on to the water....I shoulda stopped at the sand!LOL! I really messed up the water and the more I tried to fix it the worse it got! I used the circle nestie to sponge in my sun. My 8 yr old says "Its fine Mama, it just looks like the water is touchin the sun." Well I decided to finish up the card instead of trashing the image!LOL! For some finishing touches I added some piercing and red brads.

Maybe next time I wont try to make a card after a day full of school clothes shopping with the kids!LOL!!
