Let me just say, I love My Favorite Things stamps! This set, called By the Seashore, is a set I've had for a while but with our long cold winter, I just couldn't get in the mood to imagine dog walking along a shore. Now that summer has arrived, and with the MFTSC34 challenge this week, I just had to ink these stamps up.
I colored the image with prismacolor pencils. Her straw brimmed hat is pop dotted to give some dimension. I used my cuttlebug swirls embossing template on the blue background and the sand colored panel at the bottom. My oval nestabilities dies really came in handy for this layout too. The oval image is also foam dotted so as to give the image of walking along the sandy beach and water's edge. And, whenever I can, I like to use some of my dog embellishments so I added the twill paw print ribbon and pawprint brads.
This week's MFTSC34 challenge sketch was designed by Cindy Haffner, whose blog, Cindy Haffner's Corner is one of my favorite blog sites to visit. Here is the sketch:
I'm really enjoying using layout challenges. There are some very creative bloggers who come up with fun and challenging layout designs.
