Hi everyone! I hope your week is going by faster than mine is. I thought all day yesterday it was today, so I'm really disappointed to find out it's NOT Friday today! I won't say a word about how hot it is, and you won't hear a peep about how bad the mosquitoes are once the ghastly sun dips below the horizon, but I will tell you that I'm not a happy camper with the forecast! So, in an effort to cool off I made a card with a swimming pool!
This image, Spring Pool Party is from one of Squigglefly's newest artists, Mike Eustis. I fell in love with Mike's sweet sketches. I know there is a story behind this little chick and bunny rabbit, because they keep popping up in other drawings! (see HERE).
I colored this with copic markers and chalk. I added crystal lacquer to the water.
I used a scalloped circle die to cut the yellow card stock, but I gave the cardstock a twist and ran it through my machine again to get more a pinking shear look to it. Then I added some yellow stickles and a button. I thought it kind of looked like the sun (the evil, hot, non-forgiving, scorching you to death sun!) I stamped some grass and computer generated the sentiment. Now before all you grammar police get after me, I know that funner is not a word although my spell checker did not notify me of a spelling error when I typed it! I just thought that it fit in with the card better spelling it this way.
I used some blue liquid pearls on either side of the sentiment and wrapped some twisted yarn around the card. I hope you like it! Have a great day and stay cool if you can!
