Bob's A Water Ski Dude!

 MichelleO here  with some Summer Water Fun! But mine was coloring up the water fun! This is Bob's A Water Ski Dude - and looks to be having a great time on the water - 

I made an easel card with Bob - thought I needed some room to make a "splash"! I colored with Copics (colors below) I found papers from Pebbles Front Porch collection. Sewing down on red card stock on a off white base. I found an old flourish die that didn't fit just right so I cut it apart and made it splash the way I wanted. Hubby then informed me that it was backwards. Really? Well I splash this way and so does Bob. I added lots of Stickles! Water sparkles you know. I used a couple of different colors so they show different colors.

My sentiment is also High Hopes "It's Your Day!"   - Fun sentiment that works for a few different kind of cards. Love the font too!

I hope you enjoyed my card with a big splash! Great Summer Fun cards!

Skateboard Dude!

For my post today I am sharing with you a card I made using the HH stamp called Gabriel Loves To Skateboard! I love all the images in the new release called All About Boys! I don't think I could choose a favourite! 
 I decided on papers from Bazill Basics Dino-Mite 6x6 collection. I got out an old Spellbinder I had called Star Circles to layer behind Gabriel. Using Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress ink, I inked all the edges of my papers. The sentiment is from the Sentiment #3 set. A bit of twine and a few brown Gumdrops in the corners and my card was done!
I left the inside blank for now until I go to use the card then I will stamp a sentiment for whatever occasion it is for.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
