You have until August 9th at 12 midnight EST to play along and the winners will be announced August 10th on the YNS Blog!
Onto my project:
I fell in love with this "Ellie Loves to Fish" image as soon as I saw it! It's a fun one to color! I started by die cutting a circle on X-Press It blending card with a MFT Die-Namics circle STAX 1 die. I used used the MFT Die-Namics wonky scallop border to create a template and then used a stippling brush to create the clouds with some A Muse Studios sky ink. I stamped the image again and cut out the area that would be the sky. I layed this over the circle of clouds to create the little circular scene. I colored it with copics and paired some Bazill Card Shoppe sour lemon and candy bar CS with some DSP from the Echo Park Happy Day 6x6 paper pad. Finally, I added some brown solid grosgrain ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.
As always we have some awesome specials at the YNS Store! Everyone will receive a FREE scratch card with every purchase all month long or while supplies last! Every card is a WINNER!
