Beach Girl Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  Today I'm happy to be part of a hop featuring a sweet little digi stamp designed by my friend Elena.

Digi stamps are not my forte, but this little beach girl is so cute I couldn't say no.

I knew I wanted to use watercolors, so I printed her on watercolor paper.  It took a few times, and because of the texture of the paper it doesn't print totally cleanly and crisply, but for my purposes I was OK with that.

She was painted with Kuretake watercolors, and I added a sentiment created from Waffle Flower Crafts' Bowtiful set.



She's really cute isn't she?  You can get her for free over at Elena's blog, and if you need any other incentive to go download her and use her, check out the projects from this very talented group of folks below.
