Take the Plunge..Teaser Day 3!

Welcome to the My Favorite Things teasers! This week I have lots to share with you before the release day July 9th....and all the daily info you will be able to see on the MFT blog! So here we go!....
Pin It

I had a BLAST coloring up this new Doodle Garden sweetie "Take the Plunge"!  I stamped her in black memento ink and colored her up with my copics. To "ground" her I added a little pool front scene. All I did was draw two parallel lines with my gray multiliner under her feet. The rest of the "pool" is shading. I used the chisel tip to dot in the 7 ft pool depth.

I remember my kids when they were little standing at the edge of the pool and we would count "123" and they would jump in. That is the inspiration for using the new "Big Numbers" Die-namics. I stamped those big numbers with the "Darling Dots" stamps and added a little pink lemonade Fishtail Banner to set them off.

She is SO FUN to color :) Are you getting excited for the July 9th release yet?....All the cool kids will be there...Details on the MFT blog.
