Summer Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #146)

Welcome Summer!! :o)

Today a new challenge started at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog. This challenge will run 4 weeks.

Our new theme is #146, Sommer / Summer.

This time we have 3 prizes for three lucky winners.

Prize #1 - rubber stamp from Lelo Design

Prize #2 - Quilling Kit

Prize #3 - Bicycle clear stamp

For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), Summer Card.

I love summer and watching sailboats at sunset. Idea for this card was born in a second. :o)

I made a circle stencil and use it to create Sun. I blended Distress Inks directly on a card base through stencil. Blending was so easy with Mini Blending Tool. I used it for the first time. It was a gift from me to me for the end of the school year. I love to give myself presents. :o)

When I was satisfied with my sunset color, I removed the  stencil and stamped sentiment on the card base. The sentiment is from Create a Smile 'Sending Sunshine' kit.

Then I colored in black wooden sailboat, glued it on the card after drying and my card was finished. Super easy and fast to create. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

List of supplies:
  • sentiment stamp from Create a Smile 'Sending Sunshine' kit
