Summer Fun at The Paper Funday Challenge

 Hi everyone :)  This is my card for the July challenge at the Paper Funday Challenges - I hope you get inspired to get your summer on and join us! The challenges are ALWAYS anything goes, with an optional twist and for July I used our twist, which is Summer Fun.  What's better than hanging out in a hammock with a tropical drink?

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Tumbled Glass Oxide Ink
Assorted Cardstock Colors {as needed for sand, sun, etc}
Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop-up, #LF1270
Lawn Fawn Den Sweet Den Stamps, #LF2409
Lawn Fawn Den Sweet Den Dies, #LF2410
Watercolor Paper {I use this}
Clean Color Brush Markers
Gina K Amalgam Ink Pad in Obsidian Ink
Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes 6" x 6" Paper Pad, #LF1355 {outside of hammock}
Lawn Fawn Hammock & Trees, #LF1979
Lawn Fawn On the Beach Stamps, #LF1953
Lawn Fawn On the Beach Dies, #LF1954
Lawn Fawn Four Square Backdrop, Portrait, #LF2065 {sun & clouds}

As I always do I had stamped, colored and cut out the images I planned to use on this card.  I set them aside and began making the body of the card, using Oxide Ink directly onto the card base to make the summer sky; I then trimmed down the Hillside Pop-up to get a nice, sandy hill for my bear to relax on.  I attached the hill, then proceeded to cut out all the other elements; the trees, coconuts, hammock, sun and such.  I assembled the card and put the sentiment on it and I was done! I love the idea of the bear just hanging out, sipping her drink as the tropical breeze gently flows by; until she is interrupted by her cubs who are screaming in the water for her attention! Poor bear.

I hope my card gives you some ideas of Summer Fun and I hope to see you entering our Summer Fun {or Anything Goes} Challenge at Paper Funday! Hugs, Christi
