Happier than a seagull...

TGIF my friends!

I recently got my hands on the newest Leading Lady stamps from Ellen Hutson and I couldn't wait to get them inky. So for my card today I had a lot of fun with masking to really deck out Beach Lady using a lot of the little accessory stamps that come in the set as well. I'll admit that some of it was a bit tricky and took some multi-step masking to create, most notably getting the towel over her arm then behind her skirt, as well as getting the hat sitting on her head. I love the challenge of it though and when it all comes together this well it really makes the time and effort all worth it. Next I grabbed the Stay Salty stamp set and added the cheeky little seagull and sentiment to give this card a playful spin that totally makes me smile. The rest of the beach scene was colored in using my Copics and I kinda just love how it all came together... I might even be happier than that seagull! LOL

Alrighty folks, I will see you back here tomorrow since it is challenge day at 7 Kids... have a good one!
