This cute DeeDee's digi had been printed for a while, and finally I took a couple of evenings to finish up this card with it. Once I got in gear, the card didn't take long to put together.
First, let me share something wonderful that is happening. Happy Little Stampers is starting a new Christmas Challenge next month. (along with the existing Sketch Challenge, there will also be a CAS Challenge.) I am excited to have been asked to be part of the Christmas Challenge DT which will be coming in July. So please take some time to check out these challenges, enjoy the DT's inspiration cards for each - and perhaps take time to join in.
Now on to the card:
DeeDee's Life's a Beach pre-colored digi was die cut with an MFT stitched circle. Shaded with some Hero Arts Pool while still in the die, using a finger dauber. S/B scalloped circle was cut from a white snippet and colored with Memento Daffodil and a round Ranger sponge tool. WoS pink used on Miss Piggy's bathing suit, and extra WoS to color the flower bow, and the waves around her yellow float.
- Various small dies cut all the embellishments from more white snippets which were colored with copics. Used some stickles on the turtle & sea horses. Used Opal Liquid Pearls on the shells, and spread it with my finger to get a bit of gloss to the shells. Sailboat hull had some glossy accents spread to make the hull glisten.
After all was added, then I wondered if it was 'too over the top'. ....Nah, Miss Piggy would enjoy watching all these things if she were floating on the waves at the beach!!!
The background is a Brusho piece, embossed with a Darice waves folder. This was made earlier, and looked a lot like water to me, and after embossing, thought it was perfect for this card.
There's some really cute sentiments included with this fun digi set, but for this one, the sentiment will go inside.
The current DeeDee's June Challenge is featuring another warm weather set which you can find HERE . It's called Diver Daniel, and is just so cute.
Thanks for joining me this evening. It's been over 100F for the past 2 days here in our part of Upstate South Carolina. So if we're not running errands, we try to do 'inside' stuff, or do the 'outside stuff' very late in the evening. So keep cool where you may be, and come again, when you have time to chat. Blessings & Hugs.
