My project started with this amazing digital stamp called Eve Swimming from Anonymous Stamps. I have loved this image since I first saw it, and am so pleased to use it for this challenge.
I started with the blue and white patterned paper because it looks like a summer sky to me. Then, I added the sun overlay from the Cricut cartridge CTMH: Artbooking. I am so excited to finally use an overlay. I think they add something fun and different to projects. But the small circle for the sun on the overlay just didn't feel like a sun, so I added this chip board sun from my stash. I like the pop of orange.
Next, I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the image. I embossed her bikini with clear embossing powder, and then I used Comotion Clear Tops embossing powder in Essence of Monet on the water because it has blues, greens, and a touch of purple in the powder. To me, it helped the water shine and look more realistic.
Next, I took Ranger Perfect Pearls in Green Patina and dusted it along the edge of the tiles. It's hard to see in the photo, but the Perfect Pearls gives off a shine when you use your embossing heater and dry the pearls.
This was such a fun challenge; I hope you play along!
