Sunny Fun Watercolor
I'm taking a break from projects using items on the last chance list to share this card made with Sunny Fun.
I used my aqua painter and Classic ink to watercolor the kids since they are playing in water. I used Stampin' Write markers to color the frozen treats because I always think they get a little darker and brighter on a sunny day right before they start melting away.
The frozen treats are layered on the Postage Stamp punch and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used the Scallop Edge Border punch to create the waves. The Designer Series Paper behind the kids is from Brights Paper Stack.
EDIT 6/23/11: I belong to this great group called Late Night Stampers. It's a community of stampers who share what they love. Every week they have a challenge. I've entered a few times and have found it's kind of fun to challenge yourself to follow the theme of the challenge (guess that's why it's called a challenge -- hey, nothing gets past me, lol). Last week's theme was Water, Water Everywhere and this card was my entry. Guess what: MY CARD WAS SELECTED AS THE WINNER!! I am very excited (just in case the red capital letters didn't give it away)! There are lots of talented stampers in that group, so I consider it a real honor. Anyhow, I just wanted to share my good news with you.
Late Night Stampers (LNS) is open to all stampers who want to share their talents with others. There's another group called LNS Demos, which as the name implies, is only open to demonstrators. But, if you've ever thought about becoming a demo (or even if you haven't before now), I'd love to be your upline. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a demo and I love all of the extra opportunities available to me. Stampin' Up has set up an entire online network (don't know if that is the correct terminology) where demos can share ideas. It's an awesome resource. Plus SU sends us a magazine every month (that demos get for free) full of great information. There's more, but this is already pretty long. If you'd like info about becoming a demo or about LNS please contact me.
Hope you have a great day!
