MSB Bingo Party and new releases

It's an exciting week over at Modern Sugar Blvd! There is a new release tomorrow and along with that we will having our first ever release party over on Paper Craft Planet (June 11 beginning at 9:00 PM EST). Stop on by and join in the fun ~ there will challenges, prizes and a virtual Bingo game (see HERE for all the details). Oh, and the winner of the Bingo game will receive all 8 newly released images!

Here are projects showing a few of the images that will be released:

I decided to use her for a card and dug out my patriotic papers. Since I don't have any 4th of July sentiments, I came up with this one. The sparkler she is holding and her flip flops are colored over with a Sakura Stardust pen and they really shimmer in person.

Here is another image that is perfect for the 4th of July. On this one the "tin" areas were colored with a silver metallic pencil and then colored over with a Sakura Stardust pen. No matter how hard I tried, I just could not pick up the shimmer of this, but in person it is incredible!

Now here is a totally different image ~ and one that I wanted to showcase in a special way, so I chose to do a frame holding a poem that I came across quite some time ago.

The image actually has the ribbon above the girls outstretched hand, but I wanted to do something different with the ribbon. I enlarged it, lightened the lines, "colored" it a pale pink and placed it behind the poem before printing it out. Had this been a regular stamp, that wouldn't have been possible, but since it's digital, I was able to do this with no problem and I really like the end result.
