Back to the Bar

When I was making the back view of a blog babe (Joan's idea - see yesterday's post), I thought I'd try her sitting on a bench looking at a sunset on the beach. 

Well, somehow.... she wound up on a bar stool with an umbrella drink in her hand.  Maybe the Inspiration Fairy was having a hard day and needed a little extra somethin' to relax?


Let's hope she doesn't poke her eye out with that umbrella turned like that.

For safety sake, you might want to put the drink in her other hand.

Parts list:
Hat - wide oval and 1.25 circle - run through Square Lattice Embossing folder
Hat band - circle next to oval HOLE
Hair - scallop oval
back - butterfly
swim suit - butterfly - trimmed out back with scissors
arms - wide heart to heart next to wide heart to heart HOLE
hand - modern label tip punched with small circle in the new punch pack
Stool - all word window parts
Legs - middle arrow of My Way Arrow
Shoes - medium jewelry tag punch, trimmed

Drink from Cheers to You stampset.

Yeah, yeah the groovy guava cardstock and the pattern paper on the card are retired - but the wild wasabi in the suit is coming back!  Woo Hoo - Come on July and new catty stuff!!!!!  Retirement list comes out June 1 - oh!  that is Tuesday!!!!

I am loving that embossing folder. I have seen it being used so effectively. Wish it was available in the UK. Love everything about the card Ellen.

Clever Ellen...you certainly kept me guessing...I was so sure you were going to have beach babe on the beach under an umbrella looking out to sea...or watching the sun set at the end of a day...would not have thought to have her sitting sipping a cocktail...love it :)

Love the punch art, especially the drink! Love the hat as well! Alot of potential for 'behind' looks for other characters. Tks for sharing.

Ellen Kemper said...

Yes Ruby, you are thinking like me - the wheels under all this gray are turning and spinning with potential "behind" looks!

Glad you ladies like her - I think she is fabulous and my thanks go out to Joan for turning that blog babe around!
