So I decided to finally sit down and actually put together the other 2 cards for my upcoming "going out in style" event. I figured I'd start with the Do the Hula one. It's very basic, which makes for a good warm-up card. I used Summer Sun, Green Galore, and Real Red for the colours. The surfboard was coloured in using pastels and a blender pen.
My 2nd card features Sparkling Summer. This was one of the first sets I added to my collection. It's also one of those sets I tend to forget I have, and then when I pull it out again I LOVE using it. I decided to base my project on the card that first made me really want this set. It's on page 232 of the 2004-2005 catalog. I changed a few aspects though. Instead of cutting out the ice cream cones (there are always complaints when I make my guests "work" by cutting things out, lol), they are just flat on the panel. I watercoloured them and then added some glitter. I also jazzed up the bottom by doing scallops. I used Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green, Only Orange, and a bit of Creamy Caramel. I figure I will do this card second. Already, I am sure someone will rotate the design. That's one of my favorite aspects, watching people change my design and truly make it their own.
