FTTC176–All About Summer

Happy Tuesday everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC176)!! It is my turn to host and I am challenging you to create a card/project with a summer theme. Anything you think about summer, that is the one you should use for your creation! Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.

 

There are many images from Flourishes stamps I think about summer but this lemonade image of On the Porch set is definitely on the top of my summer list! Cold lemonade with lots of ice during hot summer afternoon….my mouth become so watery just thinking about it, lol!

Anyway, I stamped the image on the classic white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black. It was colored with Copic markers, fuss- cut and adhered on the card. I stamped the sentiment on the mat that was created with SB Lacey Nestabilities and sponged with Memento summer sky using the blending tool. The rest of the card was designed with BG designer papers, colored cardstock and paper doily. To finish off, I tied the crochet lace trim,  a yellow button with vintage twine and green rhinestones.

 

 

Copic colors I used for this project:

(no B04)
