Summertime Fun!

Happy Fri-Yay Crafty friends! Today is the 15th of the month and that means it's time for a fun new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero

What's better than some Summertime Fun! I am such a summer girl, I look forward to these few months of sun, fun and a vacation in there to boot!


I chose the color palette because these beautiful colors make me think of summer sunsets! I started by white embossing my Sunburst Bold Prints  by Hero Arts (CG732) in white embossing powder and used Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Squeezed Lemonade for my background and then sprayed with my Distress Sprayer.


I then stamped my images from the Hero Arts Beach stamp set (CL978) and colored them with my Copics in matching colors to my background. I fussy cut the popsicles (don't have the dies... always get the dies!) I then decided to cut a piece of black card stock into a banner to feature my images. I white embossed my sentiment on the bottom of the banner and placed my popsicles on top with foam tape. I felt it was missing something so I added white detail around the perimeter of the banner (oldie but a goodie learned by Kristina Werner year ago). 


To finish off, I added some Nuvo Crystal drops and some sequins. All of the products used are listed and linked below.

Thanks for taking the time!
