Good Morning Ladies,
It seems really dark this morning. I am reminded that the days are now getting shorter. I don't know that I am ready for that.

So I had a lot of fun creating this card for the challenge. I am enjoying my Dylusions paint. I started with a piece of Bristol paper. I finger painted with the Dylusions paint onto the Bristol paper using the three colors for the challenge. I next went to my Viva Las VegaStamps grab bags to look for an interesting female stamp. The modern face was perfect for this challenge. She is so cool. I came across the beach scene while I was looking and thought it was just right for the color scheme and the girl face. Both Viva Las VegaStamps. The star stamp and the camera stamp are from Heidi Swapp. I chose the star stamp because it says super for super star. It made me think of a model on the beach. All the images were stamped with Archival ink. The final step was to use a Joggles stencil to add the swirls to the card. This was done with a make-up sponge and dye ink in teal.

Happy Scraps,
