Classy Card Ladies Salt Life Duel

 On the 15th of each month two teams of friends (The Diamonds and The Pearls) on Split Coast Stampers have a duel.  This month Kelly from The Diamonds sent both teams the challenge kit, entitled Salt Life.  She lives in Miami and said that almost every car has #SaltLife! on it, and thought it was perfect for us to celebrate the beginning of the Summer Season.

This is what I came up with.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, accented with Wink of Stella clear glitter.

Doesn't he look like he is ready to jump into the surf?

stamped onto #110 Recollections with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Designer Papers are from the same collection.  So Cute! 

Kelly included a variety of embellishments from her stash.

Here you can see a close up showing the Wink of Stella on the tag, his snorkel mask and beach ball:

This was really fun for me.  Not owning any gnome stamps myself it was nice to play with this little guy!

Be sure to visit the Galleries and Blogs of all The Classy Card Ladies, links are in my side bar.  

Time for fun in the sun and the Salt Life!
