Beachy Fun

Beachy Fun - I have a Michelle Perkett side easel card for you today. The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is to make a bingo. You only need 3 in a row from the grid. I went down on the last row. Glitter, flowers and 2 backing/Designer Paper.

I colored my image (it is one of Michelle's freebies that you can get for joining her group at Paper Craft Paper) with Copic's. I used a new glue that I found at the great scrap booking convention, then added a fine glitter. It is called Scrap Happy Sheer Glue, by The Rubber Cafe. I can rub my finger across the glitter and I can not rub it off. The creator of the glue was demoing it at the convention. She even thought out the bottle very carefully. It is soft, so that it is easy to squeeze and has a fine tip.
She how her swimsuit sparkles?
LinkMy DP is K and Company's Berry Sweet. The flower was on a stem. I found it blowing around in a parking lot. My lace is Offray and the ribbon is Creation Station. The swirl is I want 2 Scrap, another buy that I picked up at the convention.
