Anything But A Card Challenges you to Summer Lovin'!
Hi! We have a brand new challenge at Anything But a Card. Summer Lovin' is our theme and we would love to see your summer lovin' creations-beach, bbq, camping, vacation, sunny colors, anything that says summer to you is great with us! The only thing you can't share is a card, hence the name of the site! However, I am not sharing my DT project this week, so I CAN share a card with YOU!
This would be perfect for the theme if we could make cards! Mr. Riley is so ready to cool off in the pool, lake, or ocean...yeah! Let's go with ocean! I made this for my nephew who has a birthday next month. He would enjoy celebrating his birthday in the water too!
I played with the new Blendabilities markers on this one! They are similar to copic markers, but Stampin' UP groups them in sets of three so coloring challenged people like me don't have to figure out how to get the perfect color shading. Oh, how I love that! I do have to confess that the flippers and the antlers were colored with copics. While I'm admitting things, I fudged a little on the colors. The marker family and cardstock is coastal cabana, but the blue in the dsp and twine is pool party. But hey, at least they are both water themed!! Honestly, I really couldn't tell that much difference.
Well, I hear the laundry calling my name (why doesn't it ever call my DH?), so I better get busy before it takes over again! Have a wonderful week!
