Tanning Bikini Beach Babe

I saw this great site that showed how to make this bikini beach girl. I changed it around a bit and made it into a card. CLICK HERE to see the original site that I got this from!

I changed a few things around slightly so here is how I made my card!
head - 1" circle
hair - scallop circle punch
sunglasses - scallop edge punch
body - wide oval with punches taken out of the sides
arms - photo corner punch
legs - word window
sandals - word window

Punch the pieces for the body out of Blush Blossom cardstock. I sponged them with Creamy caramel to look tan.

Make a fork bow with ribbon for the bikini. CLICK HERE for the directions to make a 'fork bow'. Wrap the ends around the back and tape them down for the top and bottom.

I used so saffron for the hair with the edges sponged.

For the sandals I used the word window punch and just trimmed them shorter like shown.

The beach blanket was a 3" x 3" piece of paper trimmed to give it perspective. The main card is creamy caramel and the water is Brocade Blue ripped and sponged with white craft ink.
I added some non-Stampin' Up bling for the belly button piercing and the earrings.
Hope you like her!

How cute is this? You beach babe is just PERFECT, and your tutorials for both the punch art and the fork bow make the project look so easy, that I think I can even give it a go. :)

Thank you for your constant source of inspiration. I LOVE your blog and projects!!
