Not so Pink Cat Color Challenge



Lauren posted a color challenge as Designer for Pink Cat Studio today and I was inspired to make a beach scene using my Dress Up Lily (Gabby) stamps! The website is not responding for me to link it for you but if you click on I Love the Kitty you can go to the website to look at the stamps). I really should be packing (or resting) but this was priority tonight! My last time to stamp in a week & a half (insert sad face) but it's o.k. I'll be replacing this time with family, friends, good times away from the busyness that is my life at times.

Colors are Night of Navy, Cool Caribbean, Barely Banana, Old Olive or similar. I stamped (partial) Lily and drew in her bathing suit-a little wonky on the right when I went to fill it in with my marker but that's o.k. don't we all have one side of our bodies a little bigger than the other anyway? Makes her look more 'real' see her little belly button?
I used watercolor paper so it would be easy for me to draw my beach - the other stamps are from a SU! retired set Sparkling Summer, lots of fun! I ended up putting some stardust glitter pen on the chair & umbrella and stardust stickles on the beach ball (popped up with dimensionals) but forgot I used a water based marker on those so it bled just a tad. Oh well. Wasn't starting over. Finished it off with Summer Fun from SU! Everyday Flexible Phrases.
We hit a record high today for this date - 95 degrees. Not surprised at all. It is my Godson Avery's birthday today (the big 13) I called him before he left for school and asked if he was excited. He said, "I guess" boys are funny. I look forward to seeing him when we're on vacation, it may turn out to be just a few hours but I will enjoy every minute of it. He is such a great kid.
