Happy Independence Day America!
It's too hot outside for me, so I'll be doing something indoors where it's cooler. I made this card for 2 challenges. It's for the HMFMC123 "fruity" challenge, as well as Oozak's #4 "bright colors" challenge. I colored this HM image with Copics, and added some small stickers for the sentiment since the image pretty much took up the entire card! I used some turquoise card stock for the mat and lettering since it looked bright and colorful along with the watermelon image. I added some tiny pink gemstones & black pearls to the letters & tiny butterflies. There are Spica glitter pen accents to the watermelon and seeds, along with white gel pen accents here and there. I wish I had a big slice of this juicy watermelon right now too :)
OWH mid-week throwdown to make an anniversary card. For this one went with a simple & elegant design, using a SB labels 18 for the sentiment panel and a CB ef for the background. I edged the die cut with a Marvy gold paint pen, and used a slot punch to weave the ribbon through the panel. I embossed the sentiment and butterflies with gold ep, and added a teardrop pearl to each butterfly body. The white satin ribbon was from my stash, and the stamp I used is from Rubber Stampede.
I may have more to share as the day goes on, but thanks for stopping by and please have a safe and happy July 4th celebration whatever you're going to do!
