Tropical Twinsies

Try and say that 5 times fast, and record it, and send it to me, I love a good laugh :D I kid, but today's post is definitely a double take on a tropical treat. I loved coloring the two toned dress worn by SOG's Tropical Mae, that I thought I'd print her out and color her up again using a different pallet.

I loved figuring out what shades would fade green into soft blue seamlessly. It took a little thought but I absolutely love the results. Another thing I love about the SOG stamps is that, like TGF stamps that I love so much, these don't have anything limiting them to a particular race or nationality. The stamps are very versatile because of this ambiguity I'm free to color them any way I choose without it looking like something is "off".

I thought this would be the perfect stamp to use since her 'twin' just won a spotlight this week in the June linky party over on the Some Odd Girl Blog so maybe she's luck ^.^ I used my copics to color Ms Mae and added stickles to her dress to make it sparkle. I wanted to keep the layout the same and just swap colors so I used the same DP pads from Bo Bunny and Echo park and finished it off with jute twine, a matching button from my stash and my new favorite embellishment next to glitter, enamel dots! This linky party isn't over, you still have a chance to link up and make your projects shine, get craftin', I know I'm about to!
