Let's Catch Up!


Summertime is here! It was very hot and humid here today. Once the humidity gets here it is usually around until fall, not a happy thought, but there it is. Inside in the air conditioning or the beach are the best places to be.
Thought a happy summery card was just the ticket for today.
Started with the large canvas stripe stamp, again. Inked with individual markers, misted and stamped on white card stock.
To add a little variation it was run through the cuttlebug in a Sizzix embossing folder.
Added color to some of the circle with copic markers.
Then added some dots of clear accents with glossy accents. Next was the hardest part of making the card, which was waiting for it to dry.........I am so impatient, but at this point in my life I don't think that will change so I am just going to learn to live with it.
Stamped the two cute little fish and colored with copic and brush markers, cut out and again used glossy accents for dimension.
Cut the sentiment "let's catch up" into each word, stamped and cut out using spellbinder's nestability.

Makes me feel a little cooler just looking at the colors and those happy fish!

Stay cool! Have Fun! and thanks for your visit!

PS thought I had this set up to post this morning guess it didn't work.....
