Hot Days of Summer.....

Hello everyone: Summer is well on it's way and hopefully all of you, are enjoying the warm days and nights, maybe some of you are vacationing on a beautiful beach, getting a much needed tan (safely, please!!) sipping something delicious and simply chilling out.
Over at Just Us Girls the word for the week is SUMMER so, I took the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and created this card.


This image is from a set called Best Day Ever from Power Poppy. I stamped the image onto Strathmore 90lb. water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder then, colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter. I crated my own pattern paper by stamping the wood grain image from Hero Arts with Dove Gray Stazon Ink and then, stamping some of the beautiful images from a retired Flourishes set called "Seaside Life", I just love all of this gorgeous sea shells!!
I stamped two of them onto some scraps of water color paper, colored them and fussy cut them, I added some dimension with the big stylus, they really look so pretty.
I also added some Crystal Effects to the sun glasses.


Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from the Best Day Ever set and the shells from the Seaside Life set.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.




Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
