Aloha! Today's the first day of TE sneak peeks for June and I'm playing along with some of the stamps I illustrated for this release: A Day in Paradise and a new Moka girl, Lani.
First I've used the Muskoka chairs from A Day in Paradise (or Adirondack chairs if you like) arranged on a dock made of embossed kraft cardstock and facing some fairly wild waves for the cottage! The waves are cut with the new wave border die. I did highlight and shade the chairs with copics and prismacolors but wanted them to be mostly white. The picture might not fully show the embossed woodgrain on the dock using the new Impressions Plate that you'll see more of later this week.
And here's one of the new Mokas for June. Inspired after our fabulous trip to the Big Island and Maui in March, I've called her Lani, which I thought suited her when I learned the name is Hawaiian for "heaven."
My Lani today looks like she has a bit of a dirty tan...maybe she has been at the luau too long! I'm planning to watch more 'colouring hair and skin videos' on YouTube!! I masked her before stamping a palm tree from Hangin' Out-At the Beach in the background and used the new palm tree die to cut another for my frame. Lani and her palm trees are coloured with copics and prismacolors with gamsol.
I won't likely get back to Hawaii soon but I'll be spending lots of time at the family cottage this summer!
Can't wait to see what Taylor's team has dreamed up for summer with these sets:
Thanks for looking.
