Dreaming of Summer Days

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Holiday Time’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

For my card today I’m using ‘Summer Attitude’. My sentiment reads ‘Dreaming of Summer Days’ as that is exactly what I am doing here in chilly Sydney, Australia. Can’t wait for the warmer weather.


I’ve printed my image onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are:
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E57, E55, E53, E51; Dog - E44, E42, E40; Clothes - YR15, YR14, YR12, B04, B02, B01, Y19, Y17, Y15, Y13.

Here’s a close up of the image.


Stamps: Summer Attitude (The Paper Shelter), Sentiment (LOTV)
Card: Whisper White (Stampin’ Up), X-Press It Blending Card
Papers: Bouquet - My Girl (My Mind’s Eye), Fountain - Park Bench (Fancy Pants Designs), Happy Flowers - Hello Summer (Echo Park)
