Kini Girl

Can you believe that it is August already? The summer is half over, where did it go?
Had a busy weekend, so glad that we have today off.  Need to get caught up on some card making. 
For today's card I pulled out Kinibella.  I thought she was a perfect image to colour, being we are having such hot sunny beach weather. When linking kinibella up to Stamping bella's website, I noticed that the kinibella she has now is a bit different.  I think mine was from the first run of kinibella's way back when, the new one has a flower on her basket as well as a design on her bikini.

I came across a card last week on someone's blog using Labels #21 for the card base.  I thought this was kind of cool, so pulled mine out to do my card.
I coloured Ms. kinibella using prismacolour pencils, and copics for the skin tones.
The DP is from my scrap basket, lots of fun summer colours in it, so this is what I based my colouring on. I also used skinny oval die and one of the dies from fancy tag three. Added 3 rhinestones on her beach bag, some clear glaze on her glasses and a piece of felt flower ribbon. She is ready for the beach!

Don't forget about our challenge this friday - use something Metal on your card, then email it off to Emily by thursday night.

Enjoy the rest of your day, thanks for stopping by.
