I so think this image from Starving Artistamps is fun, though. It's from the Juniper and Jupiter Go to the Beach collection, and I used it along with the Weave background and a sentiment from the DoodleFactory Tropics collection. The image is colored with Copic markers and layered onto a panel I made from scraps of blue paper. I had originally planned to use a plain red background, but the paper I chose was a bit too bright for my taste and kind of clashed with my ribbon. To fix that, I stamped it with the mesh background in a darker shade of red ink, which toned it down, added some nice texture, and unified all of my various shades of red. I didn't think to take before and after shots, but trust me...the difference is huge!
See you tomorrow for the new DoodleFactory release! In the meantime, go have some summer fun while there's still some summer left. Where did July go, anyway?
