Unidentified Image Swap ~ Round 2

This is the card for our new Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess.  The images for this round, our second, were provided Kelly.  She will swap the cards and include the next image that Janet, our next hostess, provides in our return envie. And then we get to do it all again!!!!

Kelly (she is MiamiKel4 on SCS) sent us this Kraftin’ Kimmie image, Florence and she chose her for two reasons—she wanted to see how we all come up with a beach/ocean/Florida (etc.) using her (remember Kelly’s SCS name!) Also, Kelly noted that locally one of the missions is to stop the destruction of Biscayne Bay’s National Park where animals have natural habitats, protected sea areas and coral rocks—home to thousands of plant and animal species that will be uprooted and displaced.  Kelly told us to do our best work as our cards might be displayed this summer at a local exhibit as part of a collage.

For the coloring of the images, I used some materials I have not used in ages—my Stampin’ Up Markers as well as my SU Stamping Pastels, which I used a dauber to add color around the image and inside the nestie that I used.  I colored Florence’s face with a colored pencil.  I like how the Labels 8 matches the SU Top Note shape.
