Aloha

Aloha... today will be one hot and muggy day here in Michigan. So what better time for a nice summery card. I wish i could go on a vaccation to Hawaii :-) These bugs seem to have lots of fun. Love how the little girls swings her hips lol. Both bugs are cut out and set onto pop-up dots to give them dimension. Stickles is added to the wings and coloring is done with Copics and Copic airbrush system. The sandy area is on purpose not colored so it is one even surface.. as you know thats the nice thing with Copics you can color with them streak free but since i had to color sand and it is not all even i thought this would work. The bamboo house is colored with "Cream, E31 brown and an other pale yellow color.

Please let me know if you want me to list all the copic colors i use on my card. It is more work for me but i can try at least.


Hut, Hula Girl Bug (the prices are mounted but each stamp is available unmounted)
Paper/CS: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Green Celery, Basic Grey
Coloring: Copics
Embellishments: Pink ribbon is "Taffeta" Stampin up, blueisch color is June Rasberry Ribbon Kit, Drew Drops, Prima Marketing Hydrangea Strawberry and Carrebian collection

As you noticed each day i show you cards from my friends. All 3 crafts were sent to me by my dear friend Kristine. Kristine was the one who helped me so much with my blog while i was gone and we chat via email pretty much every day.

Claudia, this is such a happy card! You are temptin me too much with all your Alota cards! Here in Montreal it is also very muggy & hot! I would love if you'd list your copic colors along with your post. I am just starting out using them and the learning curve is huge. I just can't seem to get the colors that I want! Yours are always so perfect. Thanks and I hope the weather cools a little.

It's such a great card and the bugs are really cute. Here in DK it's typical Danish summer weather RAIN and a little sun not warm but not that cold either!
