It's nearly time for the great American celebration of Independence Day on July 4th, and the official opening of summer! This set "Watermelon Summer" is fabulous...loaded with space for coloring or embellishing any way you want. The technique I used to achieve the look here was watercoloring Distress Inks on kraft cs and enhancing the color with Copic Markers.
I had a watercolor paper scrap that I had used to play with my Color Burst powerders. It had been sitting around for a few weeks and when I saw this new "Palm Collage", I thought I'd use the scrap as a background for it. Stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white ep. I combined it with the new sentiment "When the Sky Touches the Sea" which was heat embossed on vellum in black ep.
What a fabulous stamp "Part of the Dance" is. I think the sentiment is so uplifting and sends a positive message...and easy stamp to use in so many instances. The bg was created by blowing the watercolor drops through a straw.
Another fabulous stamp being released this month is "Perspective". I can relate so well to this sentiment and I love the image that accompanies it. I hand drew an "awing" over the top of the swing to ground it. I added some Washi tape to "top" the awing. The background was made with a paper napkin.
