Summer Time and the Livin' is Easy

Hello.  Welcome.  A new challenge over at the Rubber Dance blog today and we want to see your Summer projects.   I rounded up the poodle and off to the beach we did go........

I started by taking a piece of yellow card, ripping it and smearing with Mustard distress ink

I stamped some images from Retro Beach with Tea Dye distress

More images from Retro Beach stamped with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and I embossed the 'surf line' using WOW White Puff Embossing Powder.  

I made the 'sea' on a piece of paper using three shades of blue distress ink and images from Retro Beach and Take the Plunge


I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the boy from Retro Beach and the poodle from Poodle Power.  I used gel pens to colour the boy and distress inks for the poodle.   

And it all went together like this, with some additional words from the Retro Beach stamp set.  

You can find the challenge HERE.  Looking forward to seeing your makes.
