During the spring hop, I saw some cute cards done using the spring coffee cups from Starbucks, but my stores didn’t have them yet. When they finally came in, I snagged a yellow one which I thought was bright and sunny for summer. And when the recent sticker collecting promotion ended, I asked my local manager for some of those fab watercolor-look leftover frap stickers and he kindly obliged.
I took some inspiration from MFT’s Sketch Challenge, added a couple of travelling birds from South America (SSS Monday Challenge) and out comes a fun up-cycled summer card. Another serendipitous moment came when I was looking through my stash for some red embossing powder to match the card and came up empty. Brain fog kept me from remembering to just stamp in red and use clear embossing powder. I tried a neon pink, but it didn’t look right. Then I went over it with a Copic marker… I love the burning after glow the neon left. Unfortunately the camera just doesn’t catch it as well as the eye does in real life. You’ll just have to come over to see it!
