Winners and Midway Post at Open-Minded - Vacation Related.

Good morning everyone and Happy Weekend!!  It is going to be in the 90s today.. Hot! Yuck! Stay home in the air conditioner day LOL My youngest had a birthday on the 24th. We did a bit of celebrating on Thursday, got her hair done on Friday and she has a friend spending the night for the next two days. I think she has had a pretty good birthday! She is the big 1-3!!  Thirteen! A True teenager.. although the attitude has been there for a couple of years already LOL!!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

This morning is the winners post for Challenge #14 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. At noon you can come back for the midway post to see more inspiration from the team! :)

Our sponsors for Challenge #15 - Vacation Related are:

Here is my creation for the midway post:

I made this little ATC using Ben On A Raft from Ike's Art!! Love this image! And he looks like he is ready for vacation doesn't he? LOL  I colored him with my Copic markers. I decoupaged the mast and his legs.  I decorated the background with white and blue liquid pearls. I stamped the Vacation with some white ink, but then I outlined parts of the letters with my white pen and drew random shapes to give it a sort of graffiti look. I added glitter around the edge and the twine towards the bottom. There is also hand doodled stitching around the edge, hard to see; you can see it better in person.

  • Raft Wood: E13, E35, E57, E59
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
  • Lemonade: Y11, Y04, Y06
  • Shorts: T3, T5, T7, T9
  • Shirt: BG53, BG15, BG57
  • White: E40, E41, E42
  • Hair: YR31, YR21, YR24
  • Tongue: R11, R20, R22

I love your card but it gave me quite a giggle. This little raft is how I imaging being on a cruise ship, my hubbie likens it to an apartment building. SO when I saw 'vacation' I had to laugh. Hubbie is trying to make me take a cruise-not sure that will ever happen! Thanks for joining us at Penny's challenges, see you Wednesday fora new challenge!
