My card today is a last hurrah to summertime. I am more than ready for fall, my very favorite season.....
For my card, I started with an A2 white card base, and used my Clarity brushes to create the soft background, doing the same to the die cut circle and the hand-made banner while I had the brushes out. I added a gray strip, and used craft foam to dimensionalize the circle piece, then spattered some inks for a textured look. I stamped Impression-Obsession's Paradise Square D19185 and Everything's Better Beach B19157 with India Ink black.
I used my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to color the paradise square. After using colored pencils on it, the image had sort of faded a little from the pencil over the lines, so I used my Sakura micron pen to go over all the lines. This really brought it to life. I used more craft foam to dimensionalize the square and the banner, and finished off with a couple of sequins.
I am adding my card to these challenges......

That's it for today, folks. I'm ready to call it a day. There are wine glasses in the cupboard, calling to hubby and I. Some wine, some Farkel on the deck, and bird watching. Doesn't get much better than this!
