Connie-Think SUMMER!!

I was so inspired by some work done by Theresa Momber that
I tried to CASE one.
I see there is more of an art to sponging
inks than I thought there was.
Here is my attempt such as it is.


Sweet Pea plate #5 (an Oldie but Goodie!)
white pen by Inkssentials
Copic markers
tree sticker and flowers from my stash
Memento Inks:
"Angel Pink"
"Lulu Lavender"
"Grape Jelly"
"Paris Dusk"
"Tuxedo Black"
various sponges

I stamped and colored the Beach Girl and then stamped a mask to cover her
while I sponged the inks for my scene.
This is such a cool stamp set!  I just love all the great images on this set!!
