Rockin' the Flip Flops ~ CYP Challenge #228

Hi Everyone! Summer may be almost over but there is still time to enjoy some lovely weather. Our theme this week at Craft Your Passion Challenges is Summer Fun and our wonderful sponsor is Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet.

I chose to play with the image called Flip Flops which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils. Maisie was then fussy cut, matted in black cardstock, and popped up on foam tape.

The background comes from Me & My Big Ideas Low Tide collection and was matted with pearlized green. A length of wave paper tape from my oldies stash was matted in black and layered across the bottom under Maisie. A piece of cheesecloth was adhered behind her and a pair of sunglasses button was layered to the left of her over the cheesecloth.

The sentiment was computer generated, trimmed out with a Spellbinders die, and matted in black. before popping it up on foam tape, the letters were coloured in and shaded with Prismacolor pencils. Three tiny threaded buttons were adhered to the top right corner to repeat the turquoise of her bikini and help balance the design.

Thanks for stopping by today to visit with Maisie and me. We both are so grateful that you did that. When you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the wonderful Summer Fun projects by the rest of my talented teamies. We'd love to see you play along.
