Today is a "Pool" Kind of Day!

Since today is a beautiful sun shining kind of day......(and believe me, they have been few and far between), I am posting a summery kind of card! This is a new stamp by Impression Obsession. I purchased it at Craft Fancy a few weeks ago. I colored it with my Copics. To get the texture you see on the towel, I took a wash rag and my blending solution and dabbed at the towel.

See this cool sand? It is by a new company started right here in Illinois called Mudd Puddles. You can purchase a variety of different "sands" that he mixes up and sells in little pots. The glue is already mixed in, so you just spread it and let it dry. I love the texture it lends to the card.

Paper is by SU! and October Afternoon. I did some stitching and distressing too. The starfish was a chipboard piece that was covered as well.
Hope the sun is shining where you are.......Have a very happy Sunday!!!!

I know what you mean about it being a 'Pool' kind of day. We haven't had too many of those where I live either. Its been a cool and cloudy summer. Great gardening weather though. I never get too hot in the garden. Love your card! I love the 'sand' and the starfish embellie. Fabulous image!
