PREVIEW: Fun in the Sun Hanna

This is such a fun set. I giggle every time my daughter refers to it cause she calls it "kini Hanna" -- I have had so much fun stamping with it. And the best news of the day is that on Thursday night we are going to have a RELEASE PARTY in the Hanna Stamps Forum on Splitcoaststampers and YOU ARE INVITED!!! I hope you can be there because at the end of all the chatter, giggles and stamping, you can purchase this and some other awesome sets that I will show you samples from all this week! YAY!!! Even if you don't own any Hanna's or Riley's or Sophie's yet, come play with us and find out what it's all about!!! I bet you'll have a blast if you do.

This Hanna was colored for my daughter, she said she wanted her to have a purple kini, so I did it. I tried lots of new things on this card -- I did some paper tole, I popped up her face, and parts of the boom box. I used silver leafing pen on the boom box to make it metallic (although this week at the store I found a silver prismacolor pencil, so I will be using that method from now on since it is WAY easier and less goopy -- much simpler to do details).

Hanna was colored using prismacolor pencils and sansodor. The pink paper, you may have noticed, is not an SU color -- it is from Prism Papers and the color is called "Frosted Azalea." Super pretty color! The "Let's Party" sentiment came from a small stamp set I bought in Michael's dollar acrylic stamps bin. I layered it on a circle of lovely lilac and added a stripe to mimic the stripe in her bikini. I added glitter on her sunglasses and a bow in her hair to hold her pony tail because she is a girlie girl! I thought her pose looked like she was dancing on the beach, so I went with that -- groovy! Hope you like her!!!

I was not familiar with Hanna Stamps, but you make them look like such fun! I will have to check them out. Lovely coloring job! I still haven't tried my Prismacolors, because I can't find the stuff to use with them. What is sansodor?
