Here is a little creation I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Melissa Dawn. This little cutie is called "Sailor Boy" and is available as a single rubber stamp or as part of a multi-image plate (Sheet 3, Plate 190 - Sailor Boy comes on a sheet with Halloween Kitty, Pumpkin Cat Magic and Shiver Meow Timbers).
I have coloured this cute character in with my Promarkers. I have laid him in on oval die-cut that I have inked with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink and then used my Tim Holtz's distressing tool around the edge. The backing paper is from my Crafty Individuals seaside collection (think I need to keep a look-out for some more of these papers that a friend brought me as they are so nice). I have used a Marianne's Designs lighthouse and used my Pan Pastels through to highlight areas and used my Marianne Designs shells and coloured them also with my Pan Pastels. All the papers/card I have used have been inked with the Chipped Sapphire and some have had my distressing tool treatment to them.
I am entering this creation into the following challenges:
Pan Pastel - Cute and cuddly
Pile it On - Outdoors
Glitter and Sparkle - Summer holiday/summer
LEJ Designs - Furry friends
The Crafter's Cafe - At the beach
I Love Promarkers - Summertime
