Summer Fun!

I was inspired by last weeks weather to produce this card. I was also inspired by some purchases I made the other day whilst shopping my little heart out. The image for my card is called "Summer Fun" & it is a digital image from the Prairie Fairy. This image can be purchased at her online store here.

I have had this image printed for a while but was never sure of what to do with it until I purchased these adorable little seashell buttons at Dollarama. They are all pretty much the same color on one side (see top of card), but are different colors on the other side (see bottom of card). I knew I HAD to come straight home & use these buttons to accent this great image.

I colored the image with the watercolor pencils , baby oil & blending stump technique I learned from the Prairie Fairy. You too can do this wonderful coloring by checking out her tutorial at her PCP planet site, under discussions. The tag, paper & closepin are misc., as are the button sea shells. The hemp twine is CTMH and the sentiment is Stampin' Up, along with an embellishment from SU Hodge Podge Hardware.

Challenges for my card are:

A Spoon Full of Sugar- one for the boys

Sassy Designs by Susie- me & my pet

Dare U 2 Digi-Stamp- metal

MoJo Monday- sketch

The Pink Elephant- nature

I'm off to celebrate my daughter's birthday now (she's 9). Swimming at the local pool & overnight stay in a hotel with 3 friends should make for a happy birthday girl! G'night!
