In the summertime........

Hi Girls

Another two weeks has gone by, and here we are again with another challenge at Anything Goes...  this time our Challenge Theme is Summer Days...

Well as we've not had much summer yet.....  I needed to do something that would cheer me up.....  and what better than Ethel from the Creative Expressions Murrary and Ethel Set 2?  I haven't worn a bikini for years, but I'm sure I would look a whole lot worse than this!



This time I used my Prismacolour pencils to colour the image... then used some DP's with no name that were left over from something I used a while back... so sorry, can't tell you what they are but I thought they looked a bit deck-chair like!  I did the sentiment on the PC...  and finished her off with a bit of bunting from a stamp that came free in a mag a couple of weeks back.  Ooooh and I forgot, I used stickles on her bikini, and glossy accents on her specs!  And I doodled freehand around the image and the sentiment.

So there you go..  Hope you like.

Check out the blog here to see if you were a winner of the Let's Not Be Square challenge....  we had lots of fab entries and you never know!  Also....... while you're there, take a peek at my lovely teamies' creations.....  you're sure to find something that will inspire you to create something summery....  even if we don't have the sun itself!

Take care
Big hugs
