Take it Easel-y with Bathing Beauty!!!

Hello Crafters!  Welcome!

          This is my first Easel Card EVER!  I was intimidated at first, but ended up loving the process so much, I have now made a total of 3 easel cards!!!  I can't stop it!  It's so Easel-y! ;)

          Bathing Beauty is on of my most favorite Tiddly images!  She is so classy with her vintage bathing suit and cap!  I adore her!

          In addition to Bathing Beauty, I used white paper, Dylusions Paint & Stencils, a whale image from a Trader Joe's Ginger Beer box, Walnut Distress Inks-so if you think it's dirty, that was the "look" I was going for! lol Please see below for a more detailed list of supplies!
