Oh, Summertime

Oh the idea of Summertime- there are so many delightful things to do....... Some people prefer to go to the beach, some like to go camping, some like to relax and read a good book....what do you like to do?  I like to do anything but clean....hehehe



  I made a card using a Repeat Impressions image- Oh, doesn't this look inviting?  I just need a good book to read...or maybe a laptop to browse Pintrest......The image is colored in with markers and I huffed to make sure all of the ink was moist, then stamped it onto the white cardstock. I used a dauber to add greenery to the leaves and a Copic to add brown to the tree trunk and branches.I added Kanji that says Dream..... The DP is Bo Bunny and it is highlighted in browns and greens.

The Technique Junkies have a Technique of the week, and this week it is the Triple Embossing Technique - it is always so awesome to see what others create! Triple Embossing is a technique we learned from the latest newsletter.

 I added the Kanji for the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo group challenge- nothing better than relaxing - no matter what country you are in : )

Here is a link for the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog- where you can see samples of the Technique of the week.

Repeat Impressions- What if Wednesdays- Summer

SO pretty! Yes, that really does look like a nice place to maybe sit back and read a book. Too hot for that here right now but maybe in a few months.
Fabulous card.

Beautiful card,Shelly! Does look relaxing. Thursday I will be camping,although camping doesn't sound to much like relaxing. Im sure i will find time to enjoy the trees and the blue skies. And See some stars at night. Perfect use of those Sponge Daubers.Love it.TFS
