I have a big paper pad of black and white dsp I bought for a song, so I pulled out a piece of text paper and decided to ink it up with some distress inks by sponging randomly until I liked the result. I had a play with a Cheery Lynn French Lattice die using some GinaK blue raspberry cardstock to make the coverall for the sponged text dsp. I stamped a SNSS image on white, and paper pieced the umbrella with some of the sponged text dsp, then colored in the rest with Copics and markers. The image panel was cut with a MFT stitched circle die, while the yellow mat was die-cut with a GinaMarieDesigns stitched square. I have an old set of wooden stick stamps with a summer theme, so I added a little pineapple cocktail to the chair, and some flip-flops to the sentiment panel that were both colored with glaze pens. I had a large piece of sponged paper left, so I made a matching envelope flap to mail this card in.
I'm entering this card into the Use Your Stuff #267 challenge which is to use warm, summery colors.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great Friday!
