Vacation!

Told ya I'd be having more cards with this Vacation set from Wordsworth. I think it is so darned cute. Just check out this little chickie. She's stamped on Papertrey Ink white card stock with Onyx Black Versafine and watercolored with classic Stampin' Up! inks.

The scalloped rectangle was actually done with my square Nestabilities die. I cut about a half inch out of the center and taped it back together, then covered the seam with that wide polka dotted ribbon. The dots around the scallops were done with my Stardust glitter pen: so fast and easy. Oh yeah, I highlighted her shades with the glitter pen too, because she's so glam, ya know?

What's In It?
Stamps: Vacation (Wordsworth)
Paper: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky (Stampin' Up!); Gypsy (Basic Grey); White (Papertrey Ink)

Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine); Real Red, Cool Caribbean, Softy Sky, Close to Coco, Blush Blossom, Barely Banana, Old Olive (SU!)
Accessories: Hero Arts Gemstones; Nestabilities scalloped square die; Cuttlebug spots and dots embossing folder; Stardust glitter pen; ribbon (unknown); water brush

I've been wanting this set for so long. I just love it. Of course, we've only gone on vacation once twice in 10 years, so I wouldn't use it all that much, but a girl can dream, can't she? Anyways, your stick lady is so glam, and I love the way you retooled the square scallop die to fit your image!

Oh how I wish I were on vacation with your Wordsworth girl!! It's so cold here, and we're supposed to have a snow storm.

Your card is darling, and makes such a nice beachy scene!!
