July Summer Challenge

It’s a new challenge on the Skipping Stones Design Blog and it’s all about SUMMER!

Today is a little bittersweet as it’s my last post with the Skipping Stones Design team. The past six months have been a blast as I’ve had a chance to play with some newly released sets, and participate in some awesome Blog Hops and challenges with the team but I hope you’ll still visit the SSD blog for more inspiration, challenge and fun as I know the other DT members have plenty to share!

My card for today uses one of the newly released sets I'd Pick You. These images are perfect for water coloring so you know I had to pull out my Zig Clean Color Markers! Summer makes me think of blue skies, flowers and bright colors so I incorporated all those elements into my card for the challenge.

I'd Pick You

I started off by stamping the large flower cluster in Versamark ink on the bottom corner of a sheet of water color paper. The image was heat embossed with black embossing powder, and then colored in with my Zig markers and a water brush. I also colored a bit of a background to mimic a blue sky, and stamped the sentiment in Momento black.

The colored image panel was adhered to a Tempting Turquoise card base and raised with dimensionals.

Make sure you visit the SSD Blog to see what the rest of the team came up with, and participate in the challenge!
