Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Pool Party

Happy Friday!! I can't believe another weekend is upon us!! I will be gone most of next week, so I hope to get all of my projects done this weekend and the posts scheduled :)


Friday means another Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces. The theme this week is perfect for summer - Pool Party!! We want to see your cards, layouts or projects that have to do with a Pool Party :)


The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle, followed by a Grand Rectangle. The bathing beauties are from Artistic Outpost's Boardwalk stamp set. They were stamped first on Strathmore Watercolor Paper and then masked. I can not remember where I purchased the beach scene stamp - it's been too many years ago. I wish I could...I absolutely love it. It was stamped next in Ranger Coffee Archival Ink. It was colored in with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and the water with a TH Broken China Distress Marker. Water was then flicked on for a distressed look. The bathing beauties were colored with TH Distress Markers in Mustard Seed, Bundled Sage and Tattered Rose.


The clouds were created with a cloud mask and TH Broken China Distress Ink. The sun is a Beeswax Blazing Sun stamp, in Chrome Archival Ink. The banner is a Spellbinders Nested Pennant die, inked with TH Gathered Twigs and then stamped with the Bathing Beauties sentiment from Boardwalk in Jet Archival Ink.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - By The Sea
  2. Craft It Up & Link It Up #10 - Summer 
  3. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - July Anything Goes
  4. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday #113 - Summer
  5. Sunday Funday #11 - Linky Party
  6. An Inky Situation #1 - Anything Goes 
  7. Fun-Day Friday - Summer Fun
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Little Scrap Pieces to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Pool Party project...I can't wait to see what you create :)
