A Couple of Cards in Anticipation of Summer - it's on it's ways.

Of course I start off with photos that are not the greatest quality as I took them with my phone,
fiddled in Photoshop then imported here and somewhere along the way the quality disappeared.
I will fix the photos once I am home again on Wednesday, I pack so much to bring sometimes I wonder if I should just buy 2 of everything and take over a room in their house.

Anyhoo.....first we have a selfie with the beauties from Stamping Bella, I love the tall leggy girls and the ..... well I love them all as you will soon see I have gone berserk and bought a pile more stamps (I Know I Know I said I was going to be good but how can I when all I see is everyone making beautiful cards with new stamps. WHAT AM I MEANT TO DO!!!!!) Whooops sorry  
I have stamped and coloured my girls with Copics. Blondie in the green swimsuit 
is trying out the new hair colour you can add and wash out over night - looks cool hey!

I cut the image out as a postage image being sent to a friend and attached to a patterned paper
with Hello written all over it so no need for a sentiment. Inside is the sentiment
 ' Missing you, wish you were here'

This next one is a Tiddy Inks digital image that I have coloured in with Copics and actually coloured over the coloured rabbit with the blue as well to give the illusion of water over the rabbit except whats above the water. A bit of water building up in the mask as well. I used the Pretty Pink Posh Die Cut to cut out the area of the image I wanted discarding the boxed frame that is around the image.
I found a piece of pattern paper that has soap bubbles on it and I thought it looked perfect for the card so it was attached then the cut scene then another scalloped cut in white to frame it. Still wanted something else to add to it so stamped 'Mahalo' Added a Frangipani that has been heat embossed, watercoloured and fussy cut and some leaves. I love how it turned out.

Aileen thanks for sharing your "Swimming Rabbit" card and joining us this week for the Watercooler Wednesday "Anything Goes" challenge. Super cute image. Love how the water is filling up the mask and background. Those are super huge fins for that little body and look awesome in purple. Great card.

Beautiful coloring on your leggy ladies, Aileen, and that underwater bunny is a hoot. What a great idea to go over him with blue. He really looks like he's submerged.

Well, I envy the expectations for summer ... we are not here waiting for the winter, and she is going to Europe without asking. Well, I have memories after the summer, somehow I will survive until spring :-) Cards are great, Aileen!
