Our Craft Lounge DT25 Challenge

I was playing with one of my Our Craft Lounge sets called Hangin Loose with Kona and decided to put the pieces together to meet the latest sketch challenge they have listed. This set is so adorable and really great fun to color!

As I have stated before, I have many tropical scraps from making scrap pages for Luau's we have hosted. I love this one with the burlap weave. I used a left over white negative from a Nestabilities die and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the swirl folder. I highlighted it with assorted colors and used it to frame a tropical scene I created. After coloring the little dude, I clear glazed his eyes, Stickled his waves and popped him to the side of my scene. For my embellishments, I used a lime green button that is tied with twine and assorted Dewdrops.

Hope all is well in your little corner of the world. It is suppose to be a gorgeous weekend here in PA, with low humidity and temps. I think we deserve it. Have fun, whatever you end up doing.
