Moonlight Whispers Beachy Release

Today is going to be a great day.  Why? Well let me tell you why....
 There's a new release from Moonlight Whispers!!!!!!

Yeah, I'm just slightly excited. Annie Rodrigue is a good friend and, like, my favorite artist EVER!!!!! I just adore her and her artwork!  So, let me stop fangirling and show you the new images. 

First up is an image you may have seen before, as it's appeared on her facebook page in the past. But, she's decided to make it into a digital stamp for all of us! Here it is:
I love creating dimension on cards, so I may have gotten a little carried away with the foam squares.

 Ok, so the process: First I got out a piece of Sweet Sentiment coloring paper and printed this awesome digi up.  I printed her at an opacity at 20% because I love creating that "no lines" look to my coloring.  Once I completed the coloring, I fussy cut her..... forever..... and ever..... ok, so it wasn't THAT bad.  But it did take a little bit to get into all the little tight spaces that the chair creates. I added some Glossy accents to her sunglasses and to her beverage glass, and I used some Nuvo drops on her necklace and sat her aside to dry.  I then used a piece of watercolor paper to create a Distress Oxide ink background.  The Inks used are Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, and Scattered Straw. I got out some of my Doodlebug die cuts to see what worked with the image, and I tied a bow with this amazing organza ribbon that was sent to me from a friend in England.

Next up is a super fun little image of a kid.... well, being a kid!
I decided to color a background on this one because I felt like it really needed more of a story.  I added the cloudy sky and the turquoise water and some mountains far off in the distance.  I was imagining this family to be on a bit of a holiday enjoying the beach. This little rascal is dumping a pail of sand on her Dad's (or big brother's) head! I used some papers from the Beach Days 6x6 paper pad from Echo Park and some red card stock from The Paper Studio.

And, last, but certainly not least... I think this is my favorite image of this release!  I have to say it just makes me smile! Hopefully it makes you smile too!
That little pup just being playful, and that look on her face! Ha ha ha! Just so adorable! Again I colored her up on Sweet Sentiment Coloring Paper, and again she was printed at 20% opacity.  I added a scene to the image because I wanted to tell a little story with this.  The girl was walking by, all calm on the empty beach, enjoying her day, when out from behind this palm tree her little pup pops out and wants to play!  After coloring, I raided my ribbon stash and found this crazy bright pink ribbon and tied it around the image.  I also used some DSP from Doodlebug Designs (because I'm an addict) and added some of their sprinkles as well.  Then I went for the flowers!  I raided my flower stash and found this huge teal flower from Magnolia, and a handful of tiny roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I don't know if you can see it, but at the top of the flowers is a cute "Bubble" button from Dress it Up!
