Summer by the Sea…boy, would I like to be there!

I was flipping through the August 08  Stamp It magazine (pg. 15) today and found this really fun card design and just had to make it. The designer used a non-SU stamp set and different colours and I thought Summer by the Sea would look lovely with this design. I haven’t used this stamp set in a long time and I still love it. Don’t you?

Here’s the card I came up with:
Supplies used
Stamps: Summer by the Sea
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Black Stazon. For watercolouring: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose, Garden Green.
Accessories: Coluzzle, Burgundy Ribbon, Aquapainter

Side View:

To make this card, I started with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Bravo Burgundy cardstock. I then cut Whisper White cardstock to 5 1/4 x 8 and folded with my bone folder. I used the coluzzle to create the circle in the center and use a pencil to lightly mark the circle in the center. I used Black Stazon to stamp the girl in the center and watercolored with an aquapainter and the ink from the lid of the ink pads. This is my absolute favourite way to watercolor. I stamped the greeting in Bravo Burgundy and added the piece of ribbon!

Voila…a nice summery card…can’t wait till summer really comes. It was freezing here this morning. Ok…not, really freezing-but, definetely cold!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great stamping day!   Josee
