Today Louise at KardKrazy is celebrating summer as the season deepens this weekend. So we are all going along by designing a Summer Tag for the challenge. This one spans two weeks, so take a good long look! :)
I just had to use this ceramic watermelon slice and so that set my color palette. The image is from a vintage advertising card; I used Distress Inks, decorative tape, Stickles (which don't show, as usual), a tiny bird brad, brown ribbon with pink stitching and Sakura pens for accent. Are you feeling the summer glow yet?
Then I went on to another project, designing a card and envelope for a friend. She is an acupuncturist and her business is doing so well, she is expanding into the offices next door. I first made the framed altered piece below a few days ago:
It's an image from Vintage Printable which you may have seen in an ATC form on my blog. This is 8.5 x 11 size, printed on handmade paper, altered with Micron pens, opaque pen, and Sakura pens, then stamped with Chinese characters for Friend, Joy, and Fortunate. Here's the card and envelope:
If anyone had told me yesterday that I would be able to be so creative this morning, I would have had a hard time believing it, but as always, with God, all things are possible!
