MFT June Release Countdown Day 3

We're halfway through MFT's June Release Countdown!

This month's Pure Innocence is Hey Sunshine--a sweet bathing beauty cooling
off in a pool or at the beach. I chose the pool.

A watercolor panel was ink distressed with two colors of Distress inks. 
The whimsical waves background stamp was sprayed with water then 
"stamped" on the inked piece which took away the color and gave me the
effect that I wanted.

After stamping the little girl, I gave her a two piece suit with the help of a
Copic multiliner pen. She was colored with Copics and details were added with
a white pigment pen, then cut with the matching Die-namics.

The colored panel was adhered to a kraft card base and the girl was popped up
over it. The card was finished off with the sentiment and sparkling clear sequins.

For more peeks at the new release, visit today's Countdown post at MFT and

  1. Love how you used the whimsical waves background, Donna! Lovely card, Jo x

  2. The waves background is SO FUN!! Such a CUTE card!!

  3. Your card makes me want to grab my suit and sunscreen and head straight for the pool!

  4. Love seeing everyone’s twist on the little girl. So cute!!!

  5. I love the beautiful effect you created for the pool water, Donna! Stamping with a spritz of water on the distress inked background for the gorgeous water effect and making the swimsuit a pretty two piece suit are creative and clever ideas. The clear sequins look like light bouncing off the water.
