She's got hers on, do you? LOL Bit of a bright card isn't it. Well, there's a couple of reasons. Our wonderful Kat has chosen a theme of "Summer is coming" at Mo's Digital Pencil and Linda chose a "Yellow" theme at the Catered Crop. Summer--yellow---I couldn't help but combine the two.
I knew the theme was yellow at Catered Crop but I popped over there to read Linda's write up and nearly started my project all over again. She explains how you can pair the yellow with any color and it will pop EXCEPT red which will make it look like mustard and ketchup. AI YAI YAI! I hope my card doesn't look like it belongs on a plate! LOL I did try going with blue mats instead of red but it just didn't work for me so I stuck with the red pulling it out of the fun ice cream/popsicle paper.
How do you like her shades? Found them in the Michaels $1 bin. They're just thick chipboard. I painted them with gesso and orange acrylic paint, added some white gesso dots that got totally covered up with the bling I added, and covered them with Glossy Accents. The clouds and sun are new dies I just got from Lil' Inker Designs.
You can find "Summer Girl" in Mo's store and if you haven't been browsing there lately you should really check it out. Mo's has added several new images the last week or so. Don't forget about our kids challenge coming up next week. Get your little ones involved in our crafty fun.
