ALOHA

Hey there, I'm back with another Our Craft Lounge/May Arts fun day of giveaways and inspiration!  It doesn't get much more fun than a day at the beach with OCL's Kona!  Kona is an absolute blast to color and the MA ribbon coordinates beautifully with the new Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine collection Michelle recently got in at Memories of Time!  The hibiscus flower is a MFT Die-namics die and I love it...it was just the right thing this card needed to tie everything together!  I shaped the flower with a stylus on a computer mouse pad.  The stamen was made with a pipe cleaner, glue and clear microbeads.  If you decide to give this a try, allow for plenty of time to dry!  Check out the close-up pic below...you can see the flower's dimension.



Here's the inside...although OCL always has awesome coordinating images, I went pretty simple for this one.




COPIC COLORING:
TURTLE:  YG95, YG93, YG91, YG03, Y08, YR30, E000, YG00, R30  TOWEL:  YR07, YR04, YR02, YR00  SHORTS:  BG75, BG72, BG70, YR04, YR02, YR00  FLIP FLOPS:  BG75, BG72, BG70  WATER DROPS:  BG72  GROUND:  W3, W1, W00  SKY:  BG70

How it works...leave comments on all of the participating DT blogs, OCL's Blog (the Lounge) and OCL's Facebook page for more chances to win some awesome blog candy!  Comments can be left Monday through Friday (midnight Pacific time) and the winners will be posted at the Lounge on Monday, August 13.  Good luck!  Oops...don't forget to check out May Arts too...they also have blog candy to give away!

Here is a list of the DT participating today:


I'll be back again tomorrow with another OCL/MA project.  Aloha!  *grin*
