It's Not All Black and White

Surfboards and Sunshine

Are you having a good Monday morning? I can't seem to get into the swing of things today, so I'll just leave you with a brief post. I can't seem to put down this Garden Isle set from Lizzie Anne. I stamped the hula girl and colored her with COPIC markers. I wanted her hair to be all dark and shiny, so I colored over it with a black gel pen. The surfboard is done in white embossing powder on some designer paper, with a fresh coat of wax (clear gel pen).

What's In It?
Stamps: Garden Isle, Sketched Sentiments (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Ink: graphite black Brilliance, Versamark (Tsukineko); perfect plum (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Pale plum, perfect plum, certainly celery (SU!); white (Papertrey Ink); Fresh Prints: plum blossoms (Deja Views)
Accessories: winter white embossing powder, celery grosgrain, earth elements brad (SU!); Kissy Fit Sassy Sequin (Queen & Co.); COPIC markers; black GellyRoll pen, white and clear glaze pens (Sakura)
