Hot Sunny Day


This is my final post as a Design Team member for CCC Digi Creations. 
I am sorry to be leaving the wonderful team, but life dictates that I need to spend more time on other things.

Challenge #35 this fortnight at CCC Digi Creations is Anything Goes, and we are being sponsored by Karleigh Sue and Faery Ink. 

This image is Hot Sunny Day by Karleigh Sue

I printed her out and then coloured her with prismacolor pencils, then cut the coloured image out with a Spellbinders Exquisite Circles, and layered her over another die cut from the same set.
Although not obvious in the photographs, I used  Glossy Accents on her sunglasses and sundae glass.

A leaf die cut, and some flowers from a set I bought way back when I first started cardmaking adorn the corner of the image ... I coloured the paper one lightly with Rhubarb Stalk ink, and then added a rhinestone in the centre.

The sentiment was white embossed on the scrap of red card, cut to a banner shape.

The final accents were the silver glitter butterflies.
The dots on the paper behind the die cuts are a shiny red and add yet another layer of interest.

What a lady with her lovely pumps, modest pose and fun hat to keep the sun off her face. The layout, colors and layers are lovely. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 205th AG challenge!

Lovely card Maxine, a lot of us seem to be going back to using our pencils, much cheaper I think.xx

More wonderful coloring with those pencils! This is as cute as pretty as can be Maxine. Since y'all are headed into the summer months, it's just perfect!

Such a cute image and so many great colours and embellies. It's a breath of fresh air to see a summery bright card when here in the UK everything has turned very autumnal.
Thanks so much for sharing at ATSM this week, Anita x
