TLT Fave Stamp

Hello friends; how are you?  It's time for another TLT challenge - it's been a MONTH, can you believe it?

I am passionate about Queenie-poo's Shoes 'n Bags stamps, you can see all the various stamps HERE.  In fact, if you'd like to know HOW much I like them you can see other cards I made with stamps from within this set:

Birthday Backpack
Hey Dude
Beach Babe
Orange Backpack
Summer Flip Flops

AND these images were just released at the end of April - HA, I use them quite often wouldn't you agree?  So it was an easy choice today when I needed to pick my fave stamp to use - ANYTHING from the Shoes 'n Bags category and I was good to go.

I love this shape card; but I must remember to use a smaller size die - I don't have an envie this card will fit in - LOL!!

I cut the notebook die and then stamped notebook paper (very, very light) before stamping my main image.  I colored it with Copics and then added some BV000 - I've been watching Debbie Olson add shading using BV01 typically so I thought I would give it a try....I used it in the corners of the bag and around the tie-on; can you tell?  What do you think?

I finished the card with some twill ribbon, a tag which says "Life's a Beach!" tied on with some crinkled ribbon.  Oh yes, I added some microbeads to the flip flops - pur-dy huh?  :D  LOVE them so much; I was so jealous of Queenie-poo always having microbeads but now I have some.  Nana poo-poo!  LOL

Hope you'll check out the challenge and then join the fun!

...life's a beach!...
Hugs, ~M.
