I have to admit.....fall is my favorite time of the year. But summer is a close runner up! I love sitting outdoors listening to the cicadas buzz, watching my kids swim in the pool, BBQ's, Corona Beer, taking walks with my family for ice cream, and just feeling the sun on my face. I am always a bit sad to see summer go, so while the warm temps are still lingering my family and I have been taking advantage of the pool and grilling some tasty steaks on the grill. : )
I have a summer inspired card to share with you today. It is a new Crafty Secret's set called Bathing Beauties. I love this new set! I chose to stamp the lady on the surfboard and colored her with Copics and added glitter to the water. I used various Spellbinder's dies and layered them. I used foam circles between layers for added dimension. I also use lots of navy and Kraft papers. I hand sewed the perimeter of the card in navy thread and added pearls to the corners.
I added bronze Stickles to the edges of my Spellbinder die cuts. It gave the papers a glittery, yet rustic feel.
