Enjoy Summer card 2

I love to create my own background. For this card, I have used the ice cream images from Ice Cream Dream stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped them randomly with versamark and white heat embossed the images on watercolour cardstock. To colour the images, I used Zig Clean Brush pens. For the background, I used a grey colour around the outer images and then washed it out using an aquabrush. 

Enjoy Summer closeup

For the sentiment, I die cut a few of the Enjoy die from Simon Says Stamp with black cardstock. I then stacked and glued them for added dimension. For the smaller sentiment, I simply stamped the word summer from Pool Play stamp set in a strip of white card stock. This card needs those gorgeous Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Enjoy summer flat
