Here is my DT card for Pear Tree Designs for this weeks ‘Summer Loving’ challenge.So any card to do with the loving of Summer/Summer themed.We also have a new sponsor Robyns Fetish Digital Stamps.The are offering 3 x digital stamps of the winner’s choice.They will also be sponsoring us the last Monday of every month.Why not head on over and be in it to win it and draw some Summery inspiration from the fabulous DT cards too!
I’ve used C.C. Designs Sugarplums Sunglasses Emma and coloured her with Promarkers.I’ve coloured over her sunglasses with a black Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen .The edges have had Fired Brick Distress ink applied,then I misted with water and dabbed it with a tissue to give a sea spray effect. I’ve used Nestabilities Ovals and Scalloped Ovals and the image has been mounted on foam pads. The other stamp is a freebie by Crafty Individuals that came on the front of the July issue of Craft Stamper magazine.The shell has been stamped in Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink,then coloured with Promarkers and had the same ink and water treatment.This has been layered onto a piece of card cut with one of the Squares Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies.Again this has been adhered to the card using foam pads.The papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.All edges have been inked with more Fired Brick.Ive also used a large corner rounder, a Martha Stewart Quilted corner punch and an EK Success Dotted Wave Edger punch.I hadn’t got any small blue gems to use on the corner so I filled the holes with Sky Blue Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen.

Passion for ProMarkers : Your favourite thing.I love nothing better than going to the beach on a beautiful Summer’s day armed with my bucket and spade making sandcastles with the kids.People were wholly impressed with the 68 we built on our first day last year but that didn’t really compare to this little beauty we rustled up a few days later :
We think there are 102 but our youngest (in the pic counting) seems to believe there are about 200 – I think that has more to do with the fact he went round twice.Bless!
The colours in this card also remind me of yummy strawberries and cream.Another fave of mine – especially with a sprinkling of sugar and oodles of thick cream.
