Our August hostess, Loretta is challenging the OCC and YOU
to create a card or project today using this sketch...
So please join us, get your stamps and Go Get Inky! For a close up view on the OCC's great projects for this week please visit the OCC Ladies on their blogs -Silke Ledlow, Jennifer Meyer, Loretta Lock and Joycelyn Turner.
I combined the OCC sketch with TCP's Tuesday Challenge #73 this week, which was a great color challenge. I inked up my new Beach Bum Poochie and had fun making this card. I absolutely loved these colors together. I inked up the "Hot Stuff!" sentiment in Pacific Blue to create my background. After my minimalist card in the last post, you know I was gonna add lots of doodles and embellishments on this one! I paper pieced the umbrella with some Kiwi Kiss DP. Copics to color and airbrush the background. I used Spellbinder's New Labels Nine for Poochie and the sentiment, the sentiment label is turned on it's side and looks different, but both are the same shape. I dressed up Poochie's shorts with some snazzy Polka Dots and added Crystal Lacquer over the drink. I think his book is just a prop and he is really looking at the ladies. Some doodles, buttons, ribbon and jute string to finish things up.
