Summer is here!

Yes, it is definitely here! Hot, humid, rainy!

But on a brighter note, Summer the fairy (created by Simply Betty Stamps) is also here and I have made a card with her for the Simply Betty Stamps Fanpage Challenge. I colored her with copic markers and then went over the dress and wings with my embossing pen and covered the area with Spellbinder embossing powder for some glitzy shine before using my heat tool to emboss. The shine really brightened up my card. The challenge was to use Summer the fairy on a background that was inked, stenciled, or drawn. I used some watercolor paints to make some swirly designs and then a Vivid ink pad in Pink to add some tiny dots and then a Marvy pad in Green to add some confetti dots.
Thanks Betty for the cute Summer Fairy digi. It was free to those wanting to participate in this challenge. I think I will be making a lot of cards with her. She is beautifully drawn and a joy to color!

I am also entering this card in the CDAC Anything Goes Challenge!




Hope you are enjoying your summer!
