I'm Back

Our family is back from up north as of last night, we all had a great time and enjoyed seeing family and having fun. The kids went boating, tubing, swimming, had silly string fights, a water balloon toss, ate smores, watched fire works, stayed up late, got sun burned and mosquito bitten and had a blast! I hope all of you enjoyed your holiday weekend and had some time to relax and have fun.

I received the Karen Lockhart image above as a RAK and have wanted to color it and make it into a card ever since I got it. I think coloring a stamped image is the best part of making a card for me, maybe it goes back to the love of coloring in a new coloring book when I was a kid (yes I was the kid who outlined every picture and colored inside the lines).
This image was colored using my Copic markers, with a little Spica glitter pen on the centers of the daisies and babies breath, then it was cut out and embossed using my Nestabilities die and matted on Brocade Blue. I used So Saffron card stock for the main background panel and some old yellow checked designer paper I've had forever for the top panel.

Supplies: Lockhart flowers, Warmest Regards, Copics, Nestabilities, Scalloped scissors, Ribbon, Baubles, Pop dots. Colors: Brocade Blue, So Saffron, Whisper White.
