OCL Sneak Peek - Kona



Hi all! Our Craft Lounge is releasing 13 new sets this Friday, April 30th to retail and online stores and today I get to show you one of the sets.....Kona! I Love Love LOOOVE Kona! Last year OCL released this set as an Eclectic Paperie exclusive, but as of this Friday it will be available everywhere.

I stamped Kona in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored him up with Copic markers, and added some Waterfall Stickles to the water droplets. The Spellbinders surfboard and beach ball were cut, embossed, and sponged with Summer Sunrise and Hawaiian Shores inks. The surfboard, beach ball, and floral DP panel are all up on foam tape. I followed Barb Anders' tutorial on how to make the sailor's knot....so fun!

Check out these blogs for more awesome OCL sneak peeks: Amber Hillman, Beth Silaika, Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Chelle Fowler, Cindy Lawrence, Deb Felts, Deborah Anton, Heather McNally, Holly McMillen, Kendra Wietstock, Kisa Peters, Pam Hooten, and Terri Thill
