wish you were here

Hello! Did you have a crafty weekend? I'm sharing a card that I entered in Penny Black's summer challenge. A sweet friend gave me Penny Black's transparent set called Fun in the Sun and it features several images of Mimi having some summery fun.


I colored the image with Copics and ink distressed around the edges then water splotched the background. To ground the image, I drew in some grass with several shades of green Copics.



The original sentiment was cut apart to form a one line sentiment. The piece was then embossed with Cuttlebug's Seeing Spots folder. I cut some pennants from some My Mind's Eye papers and used some Glossy Accents on her snorkel mask.

I have to admit that I made the pennants as an excuse to use some Twinery twine! I love the different colors and chose Honeydew for my card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a great week...


Stamps: Penny Black
Cardstock: Stampin Up, Paper Accents
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Ink: Ranger distress ink, Versafine
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Glossy Accents, twine
