Hello folks! Hope you are enjoying the new images! Next up is our boy image eating shave ice. His name is Ekahi. He is actually named after Anuhea's little brother. When we first met their family they had four girls and now they finally got their boy!
Not sure if you noticed, but I'm keeping my cards very simple for this release... I guess I'm in a simple mood? I just had a blast making all those backgrounds that I really wanted use them without covering them up with goodies, so I decided to go with clean and simple this time.
All I did was cut the sprayed background into smaller strips and then adhered them to some kraft cardstock. I thought this was a fun way to add texture without covering up the spray or distracting from the image.
Luckily I picked up one of the new Papertrey Ink sets that had a lot of sentiments about summer and sweets! A perfect partner for our new stamps! Again, added glitter to the shave ice to make it look icy. He looks like he's eating strawberry shave ice... the kind you get from the shave ice truck that is hard and crunchy chunks (not all nice and melty like the kind you get today).
Been playing around with hair coloring again to stretch my skills a bit. Do you like it? I went a little lighter than I normally do.
Want a chance to win Ekahi? Here' what you gotta do:
