Blogger's Challenge 102 - Summertime/ Sumthin' Bout Summertime!

Here is my card for the Blogger's Challenge #102 - Summertime. This is also the card I made with's blog hop that went from Monday through Wednesday, called Sumthin' Bout Summertime.

Stamps: Sarah Kay "Time for Apple Pie", Tart and Tangy (SU!), Best Yet (SU!)
Ink: Memento, Copics, Old Olive, Rose Red, Copics Spica pens
Paper: Rose Red, Old Olive, Summer Picnic DSP (Stampin' Up!), Sweet (DCWV)
Embellishments: Prima’s, Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Making Memories Sherbet large flower brad, rub-on (Stampin' Up!)

After stamping the apple in Rose Red and Garden Green (for the stem), I colored over the images with Spica Glitter pens. It is usually pretty hard to catch the shine in a picture, but I thought the picture above captured it pretty well.

I used a rub-on on the brad to add a little bit more to the flower.

These are the Copics I used to color Sarah Kay. I should note that I did not have a good blend for R29 for the bonnet and dress, so I used my C1 and C3 grays to add some depth.

I have been busy, busy making projects, so check back soon for more projects.

Have a good weekend.

Julie, this is just adorable. Your coloring, even hindered by a deeper red, is just fabulous. I love my spica pens. Aren't they the best. Your card is delicious (my favorite word lately, LOL)
