Here in the UK we have some much-needed sunshine and warmth, and it coincides with some relaxing of the covid restrictions, which is lovely.
Sunshine means summer fun and this card came together so easily while I was looking at the beautiful blue sky.
This is a digital stamp from Krista Smith on Etsy (full details below, along with supplies list). The designer paper in the background was in my 'scrap stash', but a little rifling through my paper pads found it was originally from Carta Bella's 'Metropolitan Girl' 6" x 6" paper pad. Unfortunately, it seems that this small pad is no longer produced and it is difficult, though not impossible, to find one online. You can, however, still buy the 12" x 12" collection.
I wanted to create something for the fun of creating something - I find that much of my crafty time is spent making cards for specific people and occasions, or for my AECP classes, and it is sometimes just fun to make something different.
I used Copic markers to colour the focal image and created a matching bokeh effect by using the colourless blender marker to remove some of the colour from the blue.
The sentiment reflects exactly the feel I wanted for this card - fun, sunny and bright. It's from Lawn Fawn (details below) and I love it.
There are, as always, sequins and gems for sparkle.
