This round, the Unidentified Swap was hosted ny Kelly Santi. The image Kelly sent us to use is from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, and is called "Florence". So cute!! And what a perfect image for this time of year! I colored "Florence" with Copic markers, I used the following: E000 for skin; E29, E18, and E25 for hair; RV09 and V01 for the dress; V04 for the hairband; V17 & C7 for the sunglasses; and RV23 and V01 for the socks. I cut the image out after coloring it, and placed it on sandpaper to imitate the beach sand. DPs are layered in back of the sandpaper, and I used Crystal Effects on the sunglass lenses. The phrase was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neptune CS, and was then placed over We R Memory Keepers Baker's Twine. Also, the image and phrase were elevated from the CS using foam tape, to help with the 3-D effect of the card. Enjoy the beach!
