Summer Swim

This card was so much fun to make. I love the colors and the image is just darling! I colored the little guy with Copics and cut the whole thing out to layer onto matted ovals. All the DP is stamped, every single one! The plaid background was created with one of Waltzingmouse's background stamps, stamped vertically and horizontally in two colors. The polka dot papers were also done with stamps from WMS.

I added Liquid Glass to the water in the pool, it looks so awesome IRL! You can just barely see it in this close up.
The jumbo ric rac is cut from my own stash of dyed wool felt with MFT's new ric rac die. Reminds me of waves, so it ties in beautifully with this card.

Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Digi illustration from Mo's Digital Pencil, Waltzingmouse Stamps

  4. What a cute image! Your coloring is great!

  5. This is such a cute card! I love the image, it reminds so much of my nephew right now. He's 18 months and has a pool just like this one.

    I have been seeing these type cards (easel cards) all over blog land lately - I wonder if it would be too much to ask if you or any of the readers may know where I can find a tutorial on how to make a card such as this.
