Summer Days

Time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time the theme is "Summer Celebrations." It is also a chance for us to show you some of the new May images. I chose an image and saying from the Summer Delight clear set (MC374). I have to be honest and say that there was originally a little girl and dog in the image, but I cut them out.

I stamped the little boy onto white cardstock with black Versafine ink and colored it with watercolor pencils. I then added a wave using a Fiskars border punch and some clouds cut from a Memory Box die.

Need more summer inspiration? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, and Vicki created.

I love the clean and simple feel of this card, the clouds, the wave, the little boy (nothing wrong with using only part of a stamp).
