Something Cool




Keesh posted her weekly challenge last friday and I finally had time today to play. I turned on my desk lamp so I could get some good light before I started stamping and with the heat of the light and the heat of the day the only thing I could think of is "stamp something cool"!!!!!! So I went for Summer by the sea stamp set and the little boy by the beach and some nice and cool neutral tones. I was really happy with the result although it really didn't cool me down any. It's meant to be even hotter tomorrow being 38 degrees. I got pretty close to a brown snake yesterday! Heat and snakes not my thing at all!!!!!! Ok back to the card! I stamped the background with Sanded and used the Notebook DS Paper and Textured Soft Sky. I stamped the image on watercolour paper and coloured it with markers and an aqua painter. I did the shirt with Soft sky reinker that is why it is a little darker. Cyu next post!!!
