Stay Cool!

Are you staying cool today?? Summer had just arrived in Maine before I left - the hot, humid, sticky days started on Monday and today was supposed to be another one!

Today's Paper Pretties release sneak peek is from a new set called Summer Fun! It's a great set to add to Make a Splash - so many fun images related to summer!

I used some bright and summery dp from American Crafts - I just love the colors! I cut out 3 squares with Nestabilities and used the popsicle, drink and one of the sentiments from the set. After coloring the images with Copic markes, I added some glossy effects to both of them - it's difficult to photograph but it looks really neat IRL!

Another element that's difficult it see - I added a ghost flower on the ribbon. I punched 2 holes through the center to make it act more like a button, threaded the ribbon through and tied a knot. To finish it up I just added a few brads at the top.

Have you visited the other Prettie Girls' blogs lately (there's a linked list over on the right sidebar? The Prettie Peeks abound and there is some great stuff!! The Party is tomorrow night at 8 pm EST - be there for a FUN time!!
