Tonight is the Papertrey Ink June Bloghop.
The challenge this month is to get inspired by the lazy days of summer and reflect your inspiration in a project of your choice! Whether it be the colors in your favorite summer treats, the pattern on your bathing suit & beach towel or even the texture of the sand between your toes, use any or all of these things as a springboard for your design.
Summer is my favorite season. Something I love doing in the summer is to sit in the backyard and read a book while Emilia swims in the pool. Unfortunately the weather has not been cooperating much lately. Emilia and I went with my mom to Hobby Lobby this afternoon and we got caught in a major downpour. It actually looked like a hurricane and we don't have those here. There was so much water on the roads that we had to stop at my moms and wait it out. I am finally home safe and sound now but it is getting ready to storm again though.
For this challenge. I decided to use this beach towel from Land's End Kids for inspiration
This is what I came up with.
I also used CPS Sketch 121 as my layout
I started by stamping the flower images from the Beautiful blooms set with Versamark Ink on New Leaf cardstock. After that I embossed the images with different colored embossing powder. When I was done with that I used a white gel pen to highlight the dots in the middle of the flowers. Next I stamped the flip flops from The Day At The Beach Set on Stampers Select White Cardstock with Momento Black and Raspberry Fizz ink then I cut them out with a 1 1/4" circle punch then I attached it to a plain black circle and a Summer Sunrise scalloped circle. A piece of Raspberry Fizz Saddle Stitched Ribbon and 2 faux Summer Sunrise brads finish it off. The final card size is 41/2x 51/2. I would have liked to have added The Joys of Summer Sentiment on the ribbon but it was missing from my brand new Day At The Beach Set. I think it looks okay without it though. What do you think? I also took the picture on Emilia's swim raft which I think came out pretty cool. I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the ladies have come up with now. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night.
