Somebody is hot and thought a dip in some cool lemonade would do the trick, well, I think so. Now, over at The Card Concept the challenge is "You are my Sunshine" so I created this sunny scene to participate. The image is called "Splish Splash, a Citrus Bath" and you can see in this little guy's sweet face, that he is loving this dip in the icy drink.
I stamped this image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and colored it with a couple of SU markers for the mouse and the flower and, for the wedge of lemon and the lemonade, I used Tim Holtz distress ink in, what else, Squeezed Lemonade, which gave me the perfect color for the drink. I was going to die cut a little sun but it just didn't look right, it was way to small for this card so, I made a mask out of some scrap card stock using a circle die and using a sponge dauber and Hello Honey ink, I made the "rays" of this sun, first using the dauber flat to make the glow and then, turning it a bit on it's side to make the rays, then, I just fill in the circle on the panel trying not to get to close to the edge to leave the rays intact.
The sentiment is from Power Poppy's Sunny Harvest stamp set, very fitting for this image.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
The bunch of flowers is from a retired Flourishes set called "Gerber Daisies".
Here is the banner that inspired my card. I went with the colors and the words.
This are the stamps I used for my card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
