OLW 98 - Summer

The One Layer Wednesday challenge is hosted this week by Cheryl at A Paperie Journey.  Cheryl has challenged us to create a one layer card  that says "Summer" to us.  Well, living near the beach for the past 30+ years ...what else would I think of for a "summer" theme?

I've actually made a couple of cards this week, so here they are:

This first one is my favorite!  I LOVE my new stamps from Sweet and Sassy!  This beach scene is just SO me! I stamped on watercolor paper, colored with watercolor crayons and then used my water brush to smooth out the colors.  The umbrella was colored with Prisma color pencils and blended with OMS.  Sentiment is also from S&S stamps.

The second card was made by printing a digi image on white card stock and coloring with Prisma color pencils.  I did just a small amount of blending.  The sentiment is a bit too large for the space, but it'll do.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always welcomed and appreciated!! Until next time...


Pin It!

These are serene beach cards, Susan, with fab coloring! The one with the kids reminds me of a coloring book and while it was a rare pleasure, how I loved coloring in them as a child! I'll bet you did, too!!
