A Friendly Hello!

Hello! Happy Tuesday! I cannot believe it is almost August friends.... The time has been going by so quickly. My girls don't go back to school until September, so we are really enjoying each week, and luckily we've had some beautiful weather. I did take a little time though to create a no-line watercoloured card using the cute YNS Phoebe and Her Wagon stamp set for the latest challenge over on the Your Next Stamp blog - #94 Sketch Challenge. I love the look of no-line watercolouring, so I started by stamping the images with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolour paper. I then used a simple palette of watercolours from Michaels to colour in Phoebe and her adorable little dog.

I used a strip of rainbow paper from the YNS Fairytale Magic paper pad, following the sketch, which you can see below, and added some clouds cut with the YNS Stitched Puffy die set. The sentiment is one that's included in the stamp set. I thought it would work perfectly for lots of different occasions, so I decided to leave the inside blank until I have someone in mind to send it to.

I stamped three of the little hearts also included in the stamp set and grabbed some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins to add to the top of the card. (Be sure to use the code KARLA15 to save 15% at the SMS Shop!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying your summer and having a lovely, crafty week!
