Emo Lolita at the beach

Good morning Everyone!

Just doing a short post to to show my card. 

I used Chillin' Lola Limited Digi from SBS (click on the link to find her.) She was on sale for $1 for a limited time. 

There is a mini challenge going on now to create our own scene. I had so much fun creating my background and I decided the colors based on my little embellishments. LOL I used Jolee's Boutique dimensional stickers as inspiration for my colors. I got so much into the coloring that I forgot the rules. LOL oh well. The rules were: "...I want to see your best backgrounds! Create a summery background right behind Lola. Add sand, a sky, water for the ocean, anything! Using JUST your markers, pencils, watercolors, distress markers. No stencils, stickers, designer paper (this includes digital paper), or stamps! Winner gets the rest of this line free! That's 5 more Summer Emos! Upload you project here in this album labeled Summer Chillin' Lola! Now get going!" 

Wasn't too hard right? BUT I just had to "mess it up" by adding pattern paper and dimensional stickers. Anyway, I can't use it for THAT challenge but i still liked my card so I will show it off either way. I have a crafty friend who said she won't be participating because she can't draw... I told her this and to other people as well. If you want to participate and don't feel like you "draw" better than someone else- DO IT ANYWAY- you'll never know what they're looking for or how they are judging the creativity. Just do it for fun.                        

I used My Pigma Sensei pen to draw in the towel, the beach palm, beach and sand. 
The dimensional stickers are from Jolee's Boutique called "Beach Fashion" Aren't they cute?
I wanted to use more but then I realized that I wasn't supposed to use that either... grrr. 
The inside I just matted it with pieces I cut from the main image I drew up for the background and
papers from My Mind's Eye: Miss Caroline that Roz W.  sent me in a swap.
Oh and lastly I added glossy accents to the drink she's  holding but it got messed up. grrr.

So much for a short blog... that was long as heck! 

Anyway thanks for looking and reading if you did. :)
