Boy oh boy does this image bring back memories. This could be hubby and me quite a few years back.
Our challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil is "Fun in the Sun". I've merged two of Mo's great summer images, "Surfer Dude" and "At the Beach". These two definitely seem to have caught each others eye. Now get you mind out of the gutter. They are not checking out each others butts. hee hee Even though that does seem to be where there eyes are focusing.
I've used this months CLP Sketch. The brackets are pieces of a Nestie die that I cut down and layered. I used some cork to simulate sand and added some little punched shells that I scored and embossed for a little shape. I braided the hemp cord to mimic his "jewelry" and added some grommets. Hmmm....grommets. This is the first time I have ever used these things and it will probably be the last. I had to use a hammer to set them in the paper before I used my Crop-a-dile to close the prongs. They were really a bit to large for the tool and those prongs sank there nasty little teeth into my poor Croppie. It nor I liked that one bit! So they're in there like it or not.
This weeks challenge at the Catered Crop is "So shapely". We want to see your die cuts and punches. I have both on my card and there's lots of inspiration over at the CC blog to help you play along.
So grab a Mo image for the DP2 challenge that has something to do with "Fun in the Sun" and come join in for your chance at a gift voucher to Mo's amazing store.
