Celebrate summer



Here’s a quick card to celebrate summer.

The stamps are from Purple Onion Designs, and while I’ve used the beach scene before, this is the first time the sentiment has seen ink.  I used a Technique Junkie Technique called Washi Medallion for the sentiment, and that Washi tape has been sitting around for months just  waiting to be used.

The image is colored with pencils.  Buoyed by my success with Glossy Accents on the parrot eyes (see last post), I used it on the lemonade glass in this scene. The blue panel is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.

I’m entering this card in these challenges

  1. The washi tape undergirding the sentiment made quite a sweet holder. This is so creative, especially the color combo and layout. Thank you for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday. God Bless You!
