FFC - FFF - Summer Lovin
So much to talk about on this card....let's get started!
I colored Surfer Anya with my Copics a couple of weeks ago, and she has sitting around waiting for the perfect little project...and when I saw that the challenge this week was to make anything summer, how perfect was my image for this one?!! Also, at the beginning of last week I used my 60% off coupon (YES, I SAID 60%!!!) to buy a battery powered mini sewing machine and while practing with it, I sewed several lines to look like waves. I set the practice piece of paper on my "ocean" shelf and said I'd find the perfect little project for it...and while putting the "waves" on the shelf I noticed my MS sea shell border punch and punched along the edge of the sewn paper. It all sat on my shelf...waiting for the perfect project! LOL!
I used my Nesties Wonky Rectangles for the frame, it's fast becoming one of my favs. I used TH distress ink on all the edges to soften the look, and I think the Honey colored ink looks fab on the shells....giving the shells the look of sand. I used Diamond Stickles on the "sand" to make it sparkle. The sun was stamped 3 times and the face was handcut to put in the middle of the rays...did you notice the Glossy Accents on the sunglasses? The sun and sentiment are from a $1 bin from that's been in my stash for a couple of years. The paper is from J's and is the Colorblok brand...don't you think the flowers in the frame sorta/kinda look like clouds?!! LOL!
Thanks for reading along, you all know how much I love to talk! :D
PS: About my beach shelf, it is filled with all things ocean related and/or aqua embellies...it is my fav part of my craft area! I always have a mermaid or two colored and sitting on the shelf...so much fun to look at!
PSS: How about you, do you sit and color images...just because you can?!! I'd love to know! :D
