Better at the beach...

Hello again!

The June Color Challenge begins today at Hello Bluebird and there is a fabulous new mood board up on the Hello Bluebird blog to help get you inspired to join the fun, I've also posted it below. Just like last month, there will be one winner selected to receive a $50 gift certificate to the HB shop... how awesome is that?! Just check out HB's various social media accounts for all the details. 

The colors in this mood board lead me towards a beach inspired look so I went through all of the beach themed stamp sets in my HB collection and thought that the cute pigs in the Beach Babes set would be perfect. Their peachy/pink skin ties back to the coral colors in the mood board nicely leaving me with the blues and cream for the background elements. I borrowed bits and pieces from the Beach Play, Hippos on Holiday and Seaside Girls to help flesh out the scene before masking everything and stamping the By the Sea background stamp, minus the big billowing clouds, over top. Once it was all colored in I used one of the smaller dies in the Nesting A7 die set, making this card a bit larger than my usual A2.  

Hope your day is a crafty one!
