Verve Beach Party Challenge #2



Julee Tilman's 2nd sketch for her release party this week reminded me of a sun peeking out, so I inked up an image from Verve's 'Let it Shine' set. I rotated a piece of paper and sponged along the edge to create rays. The trees were colored with Copics (YG17, YG21, YG23), cut out & popped with dimensionals. The DP was from a matstack called Pocket full of Posies by DCWV...found at TJ Maxx today! I was so excited when I entered the store and found an entire display of scrapbook supplies at VERY reasonable prices! Summer Sun is one of 2 SU colors that I will be sad to see retire (the other one is Green Galore). Guess all good things must come to an end - lol! Hope your day is (or was) a sunny one...thanks for stopping by and commenting!

STAMPS: Let it Shine (sentiment), Up, Up & Away (small tree), Plain Jane (lg. tree) - all by Verve
PAPER: Summer Sun, White, DCWV Pocket full of Posies DP
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Brads, Sponge, String, Dimensionals, Copics, Marvy corner scallop punch

Fun card, Wanda. Love the rays of sunshine and good for you getting a sketch done already! I SO sad Mellow Moss and Sage Shadow are leaving. With making so many flower cards greens are always a must. Congrats on the snag at TJ Max :D Always love a bargain!
