Sassy Cheryl's Stamps, Kool Tak

Happy Tuesday and another Sassy Challenge! I’m your hostess this week with a challenge that I really don’t remember what I had in mind when I thought it up!!! LOL!

BLING in the Sun…. whatever it means to you…go for it! Play along and you could be a winner of 2 FREE digis from Sassy Cheryl’s!

Wooohooo! Did we ever have a huge turn out for our DT call… and was it ever hard to narrow it down!! Thank goodness we didn’t have to make the final choices, whew!

Congrats to those girls that will be joining our Sassy team for 3 months! You can see who made it here.

This oldie but goodie is On The Beach 
and is ONLY $1!!

On the Beach

I remember going to the tide pools as a kid finding starfish and sticking my finger in sea anemones!! I miss the beach!

Sigh… anyhoo…

I printed 2 images so I could pop her and the starfish up. I sponged the base image with distress inks while still in the die and colored with Copics.

For my Bling in the sun… I used Kool Tak Sparkles for the water, Foil Sheets for the starfish (it’s a rub on foil), and Micro Beads on her suit and headband! I also used the KT foam pads to pop up the images.

I have to say, this is one of my all time favrite SC images! Your creation is simply gorgeous!!! I LOVE this so much.

Pat said...

Hey Dawn!! This is one of my favorite SC images of all time!! And I love how you created a 3-D scene! Love all the bling! You rocked it, sugar!! Hugs. Pat

Cynthia said...

This is absolutely precious, Dawn! Love this sweet image and all of your bling is perfect. I'm in awe of the micro beading on her suit and headband! Wow!

Shirley said...

Dawn this is so super gorgeous. I'm so glad that you did all the close-ups or I fear that we would have missed the incredibly tiny bling. What ever you had in mind, I'd say you rocked the challenge. This reminds me of a perfect summer picture.

I see a lot of Bling on this beauty! Love the glitter and the popped up images! Adds the perfect dimension!
I ended up with just sun on mine.. I had bling on the sun, but it didn't fit with the rustic feel of the card..
On again, off again with the rhinestones... funny how they go sometimes.
I don't think I have ever used this sassy little darling. you have-of course colored her perfectly! Awesome my friend!
