Here She is...ALL OF HER... In All Her GLORY!!!


OK... I thought that I gave a pretty easy clue...
so I tried to throw you all off by having her be tan! The "her" being DRESS ME ANYA . I CASEd this idea from someone... (if it was you... please speak up!) and I thought she would look great with a tan and with some SHIMMERZ for her glistening skin(spray tan, of course)!
I used my nesties for the blanket and the sun. I sponged around them for detail and depth. Then of course, glitter pens. I used the ric rac to make it look more like a beach blanket. I used the wavy blade on my cutter to make the waves and sponged around them as well. I took the sand colored cardstock and used my marker tool to splatter 3 colors of brown to make it look textured. I colored her skin and her bikini with copic markers and added the dots with a white gel pen. And here she is, in all of her glory! Please check The Greeting Farm to see all of the wonderfulness there! I love the stamps and their blog... and the owner, Marie... is WONDERFUL! Thanks for checking in to see the full card and for playing along today!!!!
