Hit The Beach...Odd Girl Style!

Greetings Oddies!!  Posting today to show off one of Kristy's classic and fabulous digital images Beach Babe Kaylee.  I printed her out on Copic X-Press Blending paper and colored her with my Copics.  I fussy cut her out leaving about a 1/8" border around her as I love the way this looks.  Once she was all cut out and trimmed properly I took my Glossy Accents and coated her fabulous "Jackie-O" style sunglasses.  I waited for it to dry and then glazed it up again to make it extra thick and glossy. 

I dug deep into my scrap stash and pulled out some old Basic Grey scraps and some rustic red background paper.  I pulled out my Distress Inks and saturated a plain manila tag with Peacock ink and pearlized water along with a plain doily with Milled Lavender with another spritz of the pearlized water. 

I had a scrap of self-adhesive cork left and I ran it through my Grand Calibur using my MFT Stacking Star Die-namic.  As a finishing touch I did a bit of straight stitching and added metallic self-adhesive pearls to anchor the corners.

Come on by the Some Odd Girl blog and see the other girls' renditions of this fabulously fun image!

Crafty Hugs!
