It is hard to believe that it is the middle of July already. It makes me shake a little seeing all the school supplies on the shelves! I am not ready to go back to a rigid schedule. I love waking up later, not having a particular schedule to follow, and having long lazy summer days. Someone make time slow down just a bit okay? ;)
My card today reflects summer. Beach. Waves. Seashells. I love the carefree quality of it. The Crafty Secrets, Vintage Silhouette's image was printed on vellum and embossed in black. I created my own beach for the kids to play on. I tore strips of kraft card stock and layered them using dimensional foam circles. I inked the edges and added gold Stickles to the edges. I made "waves" by making a shaker card and adding sequins for movement.
The background was created with a Spellbinder's seashell impressability template and texture paste. After it was dry I inked darker blue towards the bottom and lighter as it went up to create an ombre effect. I added a few pops of red here and there for contrast and a Maya Road Stick pin topper to my bow.
And seriously, what could be cuter than my girl in her pink inner tube wearing goggles? ;) She cracks me up!
We are heading to a pool party later this afternoon with friends! It certainly is hot and humid enough here!
Stay cool my friends!
