Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

Oh, I'm sorry if this song will get stuck in your head today and she's really not wearing polka dot bikini but close enough, right?!?

Today's try a new technique at SCS is Blintz Base, it's a type of fold in origami. Here's my card for this technique.

The main image is from Penny Black called Cheers and was stamped on whisper white card stock and water-colored using Prisma water color pencils and matted with basic black card stock. Her drink was stamped on a separate card stock, cut and raised with stamping dimensionals, lemonade is covered with crystal effects. The pattered paper used for the origami fold is from Stampin' Up prints packs So Saffron and matted with basic black card stock. The card base is measured 5" x 5". The sentiment was printed on Microsoft word and punch using word window.

Whisper White,
So Saffron, Basic Black and So Saffron DSP from Stampin' Up
