Now that it’s summer, I was inspired by this Broken Box Stock Design “Beach Toodle”. If you haven’t been by to see all the cool digital images from this great designer, please stop by and check them out. I colored this Toodle with Copic Markers (Yr31, Y32, Y24, Y27, Y02, Y04, Y07, Y09, Y15, Y19, Y38, B00, B01, E41, and E43 and used My Mind’s Eye “Sunny” 6 x 6 paper. The clouds are made with Pan Pastels using a hand made cloud pattern and brushing over it with a cotton ball to get the wispy image. Sentiment is Paper Smooches.
Used Art Impressions Watercolor Stamp line to stamp flower image and pot. They have great tutorials on how to do this. As my first go at it, I’m fairly pleased, though I still have a lot to learn. The stamps are colored using Distress Markers, then gone over with a water brush. Papers are from Glitz “Hello Darling” collection. Banner is Simon Says Stamp as is sentiment and rose is My Favorite Things. I used Smooth Bristol as base.
Card made with Digital Image by Scrappers Delight called “Fruit Babies Watermelon” colored with copics and using Lawn Fawn Paper. Flower is from I Am Roses colored with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica’s.

This is the final card from the elements that are left from the June Simon Says Stamp Kit. The base is transparent molding paste over a Dylusions stencil. The chevron die is the new Tim Holtz called “frameworks” cut from the kit card stock. The wood veneer leaf from the kit is gold embossed. The frame is a left over from an old SSS Kit and painted with crackle paint also from Tim Holtz. The sentiment stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in soft vanilla using the flower circle stamp over the kit sentiment in Versafine. The card is finished with some washi tape and Tim Holtz element letters. Card is entered in the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge.
Here are two more cards for the June Kit from Simon Says Stamp. The first card uses the (CAS)e This Sketch as inspiration for the stamp set that was white embossed and colored with Pan Pastels (wow these are so cool). The white splats are Memories Mists in Whipped Cream mixed with water. The gems are from Reflections (Michael’s brand) and Queen and Company. The hemp bow is from my stash.
The second card uses up the paper scraps from the kit with some of the Washi in an attempt to balance all the patterns, though, not sure it really worked. Oh, well, they can’t all be masterpieces – LOL.
