Mo's Challenge # 39

Fun in the Sun!

I think you'll find my challenge this week a little easier than last week's! Just think 'fun in the sun'....any Mo's image that evokes summer fun will do! I made two cards that fit the criteria.

For the first, I chose "Pool Party", a cute image of Bella & Bronte ready for a swim. I had fun combining it with a few other images to create a beach scene.
I tore the CS to create the 'water' and 'sand' and used Flower Soft for the 'clouds' and 'sea foam'. A stamp from the SU! Itty Bitty Borders set was used to create the look of sand by stamping repeatedly with several shades of brown and gold inks.

Digital images: "Pool Party" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Palm tree from The Digi Doodle Shop, Crab from a coloring book site

Card Stock: SU! Soft Sky, Cool Caribbean, Gable Green, Barely Banana, Tempting Turquoise, Taken with Teal, Yo-Yo Yellow. PTI White

Tools: Copics, Scissor, White gel pen, Assorted brown SU! ink pads, Scissors, Mounting tape, Glue dots

Embellishments: Flower Soft, Plastic shell charms

Stamps: SU! Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Hero Arts sentiment, Eat Cake Graphics smiling sun

 For the second card I used  Mo's "Lacie with Ice Cream". Isn't she the cutest thing?!

Card Stock: SU! Barely Banana, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, PTI White

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Cupcake

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Embossing folder, Mounting tape

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbons

Have fun with this and enter to win a fabulous image from Mo's shop!
We're waiting to see your Idea of summer fun!
