Even though it didn't feel much like spring here in the last couple days I made this row of 'kinis to help bring on the warmer weather. Now myself, I don't wear a bikini....good grief...it is enough for me to just put on a bathing suit and we even have a pool in our backyard! But I have a friend who looks fantastic in a bikini and she is always busy 'tanning'. I think i may use the you glow girl sentiment on the inside and give it to her. HeeeHehehe!
I think this stamp is just so fun! I coloured it up when I was at Paula's last weekend and had no paper in front of me...just picked some random copics and went at it. Well, when I got home, I started looking through my paper stash and came across this Basic Grey paper. It was perfect, except that my blue bikini's were purple! No worries because copics are VERY forgiving....I just went over my purple suits with blue markers and voila! Now they are blue and match my paper. Yet another reason to love that extravagant copic purchase! I added lots of glitter and now these 'kinis just glow!
Thinking of copics...I want to show you what I bought on that Paula visit. Pauline and I stopped at the new Hobby Lobby in Canton and I printed off some 40% coupons for us. This is what we bought with them! It is made by The Paper Studio and was only about $15 with the coupon. I had a smaller one that I bought at a scrapbook show in London and I used to keep my sketch markers in it, but now I have ALL my copics in ONE handy dandy case, and with the handles, it is perfect when I want to tote them around. This afternoon I spent a good chunk of time reorganizing them in color families and I even made a divider for the large side so they would stay contained easier. I tell ya, I could spend all weekend puttering around and reorganizing stuff. It's my fav way to spend the day. Those pencils you see there are a Lyra skintone set that I also picked up at Hobby Lobby. I haven't used them yet, I may just 'admire' them for a while. The polka dot thing behind the pencils is a tray that came with the bag and I'm pretty much using that and the pencils to take up space until I finish off my copic collection.
Now don't forget to check in on the Stamping Bella blog tomorrow for our next challenge. And remember, there is LOT'S of time to play because we will have two weeks to complete this one because Emily is skipping next Friday!
Well, that's it for today. Let's hope for some warm weather soon so that everyone who looks good in a 'kini can get one on soon!
