Happy Summer Days ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Great Impressions Blog today featuring the Summer Days (D354) sentiment and Surf Boards (F476) stamps.


I did something a little different for this weeks project. First my card is 5" x 7-1/2". Second, my medium for coloring the images are watercolor markers, distress ink, gelatos, and a paint brush with water.

To start I colored the stamps with markers and stamped the images, and then I used a paint brush and water to move the ink around to get the watercolor look. I then put some colors on a palette and used a paint brush and water to create the shading around the images.

My design was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch #283.


Here's another look at the Summer Days (D354) and Surf Boards (F476) stamps before I added them to my card ...
