Boardwalk Beauties!

Oh yes baby, we are talking a brand new stamp release from Artistic Outpost, "BOARDWALK" and it is a sizzling hot Summer beauty! Artistic Outpost is having a Memorial Day Sale and ALL STAMPS are 15% off through June 8th and that is one fabulous way to celebrate the arrival of Summer and the "Boardwalk." The sale price will be reflected in the cart.
Over the next several weeks, all of the design team will be showing off their "Boardwalk" creations, but for today here is the Blog Hop lineup! Gerrie, Lisa, Sue, Tracy, Linda, Alison, Terry (me) Kate.
I told you it was Sizzling Hot and sure to make a splash in Blogland!  For this I started with an inky background on a blue shade of card stock using Gathered Twigs, Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean and Stormy Sky, did that Spritz and Flick thing, embossed with Tim's TF and highlighted the raised areas with Stormy Sky and Squeezed Lemonade.  The edges were then distressed and mounted on black and a piece of black mesh was applied.  Atlantic City ATC collage was stamped in Black Archival using the same Distress colors on vanilla card stock covered with Tim's Tissue wrap and then clear embossed.
The "Bathing Beauties" were again inked on vanilla card stock using the same colors and stamped with Black Archival and fussy cut! 
The "Atlantic City" emblem again used the same color palette, was cut with circle die and fit perfectly in a large bottle cap and a domed glass piece to cover!  Summer fun all the way around!
I will be linking this up to Simon Says Stamp and Show for their "Favorite Ink" and at the moment Distress Salty Ocean is one I seem to run. Although there are many favorites!  Hope you have enjoyed my "Bathing Beauties" and remember there is still time left for the AO "May Monthly Referral Program. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Memorial Day for those who are in the US and a wonderful weekend to all!
