Hanna Week!



This Friday will see the debut of 3 more Hanna stamp sets....here's my first sneak peek with one of the new sets! This card was made with a set called "Fun in the Sun", and it has the cutest little beach theme to it!

You're gonna think I'm nuts, but a while ago I vacationed in Bermuda, and was crazy enough to take a baggie full of sand back with me. I thought that if you're gonna steal sand, it may as well be PINK SAND from a Bermuda beach! It's not very pink but it was a clean, white sand that I had envisioned using in cardmaking! Oh man. I wonder if that's illegal? This weekend I had my chance to use my contraband! I used it just like you'd use glitter....use a liquid glue, streak the glue across your image (avoiding the black lines of the image) and then slap on the sand! I think you can buy craft sand somewhere, but if you're going on vacation, why not get it free?!
I tried to get a close-up so you can see the sand on the card.
I used Copic markers to color the images in, and a Sakura gelly roll clear glitter pen to outline the umbrella, so it looks like the sun is reflecting off the objects.
I'll have a couple more beachy samples tomorrow night; I need to try to get a better photo of the cards I made this weekend because they all turned out bad. Ain't Monday a beach?
