Good morning! The Baker's Dozen Design Team is hosting a pre-release peek of all the new Taylored Expressions sets and dies that will be available in the TE Store TOMORROW! Woot! I'm giving you a special sneak of a new Moka - Moka Dylan, which is illustrated by the fabulous Nancy McKinney for her Whimsical Wishes line of stamps.
Holy Moka merman muscles!! Tee hee! I stamped Dylan on Choice Snow White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored him with Copic Markers. I gave him a sun kissed glow, using E11, E13, and E15 for his suntan. I used the Moka Hair & Skin Color Chart to pick some strawberry blond colors for him too. I created all of the little borders with the Majestic Border Die and then used the negative die cut for the scallop look underneath the layered Waves Borders. I used the Fly Your Flag 2 Die for the sentiment flag, and then created a smaller flag to put underneath with some Crystal Twinkles. The papers are Hello Summer 6x6 from Echo Park and the layout is Jen Shults' DS56.
I used the new Waves/Bubbles Impression Plate to create the embossed background - here is a detail shot of the bubbles (the waves are in the blue paper).
Here is some additional info about the July Release:
