I masked the cats & dogs to huddle them together, and while the masks were still on, I blended in some subtle background in in Maliblue & Jellybean and then colored the animals with Copics.

SSS-August Card Kit

1_328046_ZMHello there! Today I’m sharing a project created using the August card kit by Simon Says Stamp. This kit is chock full of summery-shimmery goodness.SSS-August Card kitI couldn’t resist a shaker to show off that delicious “Magic Fairy Dust” glitter that comes in the kit. I used one of the Nested Circle dies and a little partial die cutting to create my half-circle window. I stamped the hello sentiment & flip flops using the Flip Flop Season set. Then I masked off the letters to blend in a bit of Duckling & Apricot. Look at that textured Tropical Bay shimmer cardstock for the front panel. Isn’t she pretty?
SSS-August Card kitDon’t you love that Sunshine die? With my ink blenders, I added some Twirling Tutu & Teeny Bikini to give it some ombre love. Here’s the good news…I happen to have an extra Sunshine die. Are you interested? Leave me a comment for your chance to win it. Woot! Thanks for stopping by!
