Live it up!

I've used this sentiment before-- so funny!


  • AI Girlfriends: Beach Babes stamp bought two summers ago
  • Stamp inked on Strathmore watercolor paper with Ranger Archival in Jet Black then heat set
  • Image colored with Spectrum Noir pens (skin and grey), Prismacolor pens (pinks), and a Sharpie for the lime green.  My only regret is using too dark a grey for some of the shadows... specifically for her legs.  
  • The background was watercolored with Loew Cornell watercolors
  • Sentiment written with a paintbrush in some scribbled Distress Crayon in Black Soot with water
  • Circle punch from Autumn (thanks!)
  • Daisy stickers by Martha Stewart (this is my second pack of these-- love them.  I wasn't planning to include them, but some of my watercolor background looked icky, so they provide a good cover-up)
  • Core'dinations cardstock for mat

I'd like to share this at the following challenges:
