Ribbon Carousel Challenge #94
Hello everyone! Welcome back for a new round of the Ribbon Carousel Challenge! This month's theme is Dad's, Grills and Summer Fun, which is appropriate given that pools are open, school is out (at least here it is), and Father's Day is right around the corner. (And I am in denial about each and every one of those things because I swear it was just the beginning of April...where is time going?!)
So this month I decided to play on the Summer Fun theme. Here is my card:
I am in love with the way this card turned out. I used Paper Smooches' Crystal Clear and I Heart Art sets. I even managed to use a couple of stamps from those sets in unconventional ways, which I am super proud of myself for even trying! The "tree" was created using a flower stem repeatedly in three different ink colors. The table that the lemonade is sitting on was created using the solid pencil stamp from the I Heart Art set. I just stamped it one way, flipped it over, then stamped it the other way. Then once more for the stand. So fun. I watercolored the background using a blue ink pad with my water brush. I did the same to color in the lemonade, using a yellow ink pad with my water brush. The sentiment was made by masking off certain letters from sentiment stamps to create the wording I needed.
Thanks for letting me show off my card and don't forget to play along for the chance to win a 10-pack of wooden spools!
