Simply Summer

I have been playing with my friends all weekend.  I had made this card just before I left but was so busy having fun that I almost forgot to post it.

This card is for the challenge at House Mouse & Friends with the theme of “Make a Splash” and asking to show water on the card.  I totally forgot I had this stamp and had not even used it before.  This card was very hard to make because it was also being entered in a challenge that was to be very simple and only 1 layer.  I truly felt it was unfinished because I ached to do more with it.  Hold me back!!!

I colored the image with Tombow markers.  I decided to add a little pink flocking to the “snow ball”.  I think I bought this stamp because I love to eat these.  I wanted it to look like the pink coconut but maybe not quite the same affect.  I used my scor-pal for the bottom to give it the look of a picnic tablecloth and sponged a little red ink on it.  Then I added some “stitched clouds” to the top.
