Life is nothing without Friendship - Bloggers Challenge - Summertime

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Flowers Challenge, you guys sure do love your flowers, there were so many fabulous entries last week!  The challenge this week is Summertime.

I created a Mixed Media card for the challenge, using the "3 Girls" stamp from Stampotique, DecoArt Paint, the Gelli Arts Plate and stencils from Just a Trace.

The mixed media background panel is a result of a number of pulls on top of each other using the Gelli Plate to created a more muted background using the Dottie and Jacks Stencils from Just a Trace, and DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Flamingo, Coastal Waters and Orange Sherbet, along with some Picket Fence Distress Stain.

Once the background panel was dry, I stamped the "3 Girls" image in Ranger Black Archival and die cut the panel and layered it onto a black panel and to the base card using dimensionals.  I added a little bit of MuddPuddles Ivory Coast Sand to the stamped panel.

Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Mixed Media, Black, Plum
