You're in my Sun
Happy 4th of July! It's a weird one for me as we're not doing our annual party this year, but it's kind of nice to be able to relax and enjoy someone else's efforts today instead. I'm showcasing a new TEW stamp premiering today: Lucy Loo "It's Hot Outside". I've used the png transparent background format of the stamp, which is new for TEW. That means I was able to nab a photo from the net and print the stamp right over it. No fussy cutting necessary. It works for digital papers as well. Since today is the 4th of July, I used patriotic colors and kept the card pretty CAS. The embossing is the Rays folder by Tim Hotz for Sizzix and I love the little stars on the Card Candi (had them for years and forgot about them until now). Sentiment is computer generated.
Lucy is colored with Copics and I've tried to give her a little tan using more of the E11. Love that her bikini is patriotic as well. I've added Glossy accents to her lips, nails and drink.
