Check out what new goodies the team has posted today: 

 I thought this little beach girl (Item # CS376 Jill) was cute and so I picked her to ink up and play with for today. I kept the color scheme red, blue and kraft. Red and blue always seem like summer colors to me and I threw the kraft in to match up with the sand. 
 I stamped the image and then cut it out with a large Circle Nestie. You can see the colors I used for the sand and sky. 
 I finished up coloring using the Copics shown in the above picture 
After I finished coloring, I popped the image back in to the nestie circle die and added piercing marks to the top half of the image. I used the inside of the die as a guide to keep me even with my piercing. I stamped the sentiment on a label die cut from MFT's Sweet Stack Dies. Different layers were popped up using foam tape.
