Counting The Waves of Love

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 593 - Eating Cake and Pointing at the Wild Sky and for dessert "at the beach" which is where I long to be 90% of the time. It is also my Cool Treat place that I treat myself to as much as possible so this is also for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 384 - Cool Treats. I used my Marvy Mega Circle Punch to create my open circle for sponging for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 590 - Everything Old is New Again - Reverse Masking. I sponged soft sky, stamped my dolphin image in black then sponged pacific point for the water. I lined the waves lines with stickles for bling. I used the circle from the mask to cover my focal image and sponged some crumb cake then stamped some itty bitty background image in crumb cake to simulate sand. The palm tree die was cut out in crumb cake and wild wasabi.
On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the ODB set in pacific point ink then inked up just the last part of the sentiment and stamped on the envelope. Hope you like it. I have a 16 days count down to our next family beach trip. Cant wait.

Sweet Summertime Lemonade Treat

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE #593 - Everything Old is New Again - Reverse Masking, today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 384 - Cool Treats, and my layout is from today's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 455 . I was so inspired today after many weeks of lost mojo. When I think of this heat we are going through and what was enjoyed just yesterday a glass of sweet lemonade I just had to dirty up these sets. I used 2 sets for this card. The images are from Lawn Fawn's Make Lemonade. The sentiment is from Frantic Stamper's Sweet Fruits set. I masked the inside and sponged some mustard seed distressed ink around the edge then I used that sheet and trimmed out the inside to sponge some so saffron ink around the images. I cut the sun out of more mustard cs. I dusted off my stamping pastels and did some water coloring. I popped up the bottom right panel on dimensionals. On the inside I stamped off the full lemon slice then on the inside. Over that I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn "make Lemonade" On the envelope I stamped the half lemon image and colored with copics. Hope you like it.
