You make life a little cooler...

Hello friends!

As the weather heats up the urge to find a cool body of water to jump into becomes mighty strong, just ask
Skip and Hazel from the new Amongst the Pines collection at Purple Onion Designs. Hazel is the cute little mouse on the tire swing and I thought it would be fun to create a scene where she is playfully swinging out over the shore of a lake. So once I had her and the tree stamped on the card stock I masked them off and stamped the Woodland Horizon behind them. Next, I grabbed the older Rocky Shore stamp and partially stamped some rocks down in the bottom right corner of the card. Once I masked the rocks I stamped Skip, the diving beaver  just behind them to add another friend and more depth to the scene. Then all that was left was for me to grab my Copic markers and start coloring everything in, starting with the water for the lake. With that done, all that was left was to add a sentiment from the Great Outdoors Sentiment set to complete this cute summer card.  :)

See ya in 24!
