Wednesday means Chi Chi day here

July 1 was such a fun day...the newest stamp set from Chi Chi Memories Beach Time was released...

Look at that adorable set!!!  I knew right away that I wanted to create a canvas for an upcoming birthday gift.  I first merged the cute girls with the umbrella and the sentiment.  I then added the sun from the Spring is here set.   I then printed the image onto heavy cardstock.   The image was Mod Podged onto the 5x7 canvas; which I have been hoarding for a very long time in my craft room waiting for just the right project!  I then pulled out my Faber Castell watercolor pencils and Gelatos and went to town.  When the entire image was colored I added one final layer of Mod Podge to seal it.  I then went over all the lines on the image with my favorite pen; Permaball marker (which is not made anymore...sniff sniff).  I added a few extra doodles and things to the lines here and there for some extra fun.

I am so loving this new set...all the pieces are so cute by themselves and coordinate to well together.
