This week's Prettie Wednesday challenge was issued by Charmaine, to make a card using bright summery colors. How perfect for next month's Stamp of the Month, Make a Splash Sophia! She's all ready to jump right into summer, just like my little one is! And here Sophia is even diving straight into the lake, something Julia will happily be doing in just over 3 months when we finally get to go back to Maine...I can't wait!!!
I started off with Sophia on some Whisper White cardstock and colored her in with my SU! markers. For the Kiwi Kiss bathing suit and Pacific Point water I used my aquapainter and the ink pads. If I had been thinking, I would have added some sparkle to that water, or at least some crystal effects ... hmm ... maybe I'll go back and add that now!
For the layers, I used some awesome SU! dsp from the current catalog, Good Morning Sunshine. I love all those bright colors!! I actually used an old SCS sketch challenge from sketch notebook for the layout...with several modifications of course! ;-)
And don't forget that tomorrow is a new Prettie Challenge, and I have it on the QT that this week's challenge is another sketch, so be sure to check the forums, or the Prettie Blog to see what Danielle has in store for us this week!
