Summer Sunshine


Summer is just too short to not celebrate it!  What better way to spend summer than at the beach in the sun?  I only wish that we lived close enough to a warm beach to go, because it sure hasn't been very hot or sunny here in Alberta!

This week at Paper Sundaes, our challenge is clouds and sky.  I've used a stipple technique and cloud mask and masked over this Belles 'n Whistles 'Tube Wear' girl to create the summer sky behind her.


I've paired her up with a sentiment from Lili of the Valley, some Echo Park 'Splash' papers, a bit of Divine Twine, and some embellishments from the 'stash' :)


I hope you are enjoying a marvelous summer and finding lots of time for relaxing and enjoying the sun!  If you have the chance, come play along with us at Paper Sundaes!

Belles 'n Whistles - complimentary colours
Bunny Zoe's - Fun in the Sun

Hi Christine... what an adorable card.

omg.. i was getting fed up with my markers.. after 3 years they really needed to be cleaned up. I needed to start over on several images, now i just need to stay on top of the task of cleaning them :-)

This is fabulous Christine. I love your clouds and I will now have to find my stipple brush. I especially love that sand - so i am going to get out my markers and start dotting. Ta for the inspiration.
