An Anything But Ordinary Summer Day ;) --- In A Sweet Pea Dream -- Warmer Weather -- Challenge # 12

Hi everyone !!  This challenge sure was appropriate it really warmed up here in Florida over the last week and a half.  We have had temps in the 80's almost everyday :)  I chose one of my newest stamps, another I just had to have ...  there are so many of them lol ~ it is An Ordinary Summer Day by Ching Chou Kuik.  I decided to use greens in this one.  I colored her with my watercolor pencils and then glittered her with 5 different green shades of glitter from the Art Institute -- some transparent on her hair and body and some opaque. I did use white pearl glitter in her hair and that was the only pearl glitter this time, so there is alot of sparkle going on lol :)  The background was done with my pearlescent chalks and the sand is actually flower soft. I added 2 real tiny starfish and a shell and some little beads and rox in the sand and plants. I used some new punches this time and added the lace and beading to pull it all together. The pretty seahorse background paper is from Creative Imaginations. I added some close-up pics so you can see all the details ;)  I like how she turned out and hope you do as well ... As always thanks for taking the time to look at my creation ;)
