Make a splash...

Good morning!

I've got one more Sunshine Lake card to share for now but I promise you will be seeing plenty more of these cute critters from me in the near future. For this one I wanted to keep the design clean and simple, like a quick snapshot of Daphne, the beaver, and Ida, the bunny, playing beneath the cool lake water. I also added a whole school of Neptune, the fish, even mirror stamping one to face the opposite direction. Teal and orange is one of my most favorite color combos and tends to be a 'go to' for me especially on summer cards like this one. I think these two little swimmers look great in their coordinating gear. For the bubbles I simply used my Colorless blender Copic to push out circles in the water then added Glossy Accents over each one to make them nice and shiny. A quick sentiment strip added through the simple scene and this fun birthday card was done! See, not every card I make has to be colored over every square inch of it... just most of them, LOL! ;)
Now don't forget that  Purple Onion Designs is offering the entire Sunshine Lake collection PLUS the sentiment set as a discounted bundle for a limited time. All 25 stamps (27 images in all) plus the Sunshiney Sentiments (6 sentiments) are being offered at a 30% discount. The complete bundle is $115.00 and is available through May 31, 2020. You can find it all HERE.  

Later gators!
