Fresh Brewed Designs "SUMMERTIME AND THE LIVIN' IS EASY!" Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the May Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop!
If you have already visited the challenge blog and are arriving
here from Amy, then you are right on track!
If not, then go BACK to the start >> HERE<< at Freshly Brewed Challenges. 

Last month we welcomed in Spring, 
but this month we are moving on into summer!

Sand in our toes, the smell of salty air, late evening walks, sticky, Popsicle covered faces, mosquitoes...
Yes, it is almost here. 
And we are SO EXCITED!!!

Here is a card I created featuring one of Heather's newest digital stamps called:


I am using "Beach Getaway" a Fresh Brewed Designs digi. I wish I was there right now. 

The sentiments are Fresh Brewed Designs sentiments.

Copics used are B000, B00- sky, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18- water, W00, W1- sand, C00, C1, C3, C5- sidewalk, BV20, BV23, C1- tile floor, G20, G94, G99, YG93- trees, E11, E13, E15, E17- tiles on roof, E000, E00, E31- tan building, YR21, Y11, BV20- yellow buliding, YR00, YR01, YR02- orange building, RV10, RV13, RV21, RV23- pink awnings, B000, B01, B02, B04- blue awnings, bed and chairs,, YG00, YG01, YG03, YG07- green awnings, E41, E43, E44- wood floors, E31, E33, E37- table.

The bakers twine is by The Twinery.

The sentiment I cut out by hand in a banner shape. I then inked the banner is Pistachio ink by Martha Stewart. One dry I added faux stitching to it using a blue metallic Gelly Roll Pen. I then put 2 pop dots on the back to help give a wave to it. I then used glue dots to hold down the other 3 sections of the sentiment. 

The pearls are by Miraim's Crafting Supplies. They were white. I colored them with Copics RV13, YG03, B05. 

The papers are by Recollections- blue, pink, lime, Georgia Pacific- white.

The card is 6" x 7".
