Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Summer Holiday/Summer

Time for another challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week our theme is Summer Holiday/Summer.  To create my card, I was given this cute image called Reginald Clam Diggin' from Lacy Sunshine Stamps.

I started with a beach background (a freebie from Digital Doodling - thank you), which I mounted on navy cardstock that covered a white card base.  I coloured  Reginald Clam Diggin' with pencils, die cut into an oval, mounted on a red oval, and attached to the card with foam tape.  I stamped the sun in black on two shades of yellow cardstock, fussy-cut, then fussy-cut just the centre, paper-pieced the centre onto the sun with foam tape, and affixed to the card.  The sentiment is a freebie from StampArt Design by Kathryne (thank you), which I coloured with pencils and affixed with foam tape.  I embellished with a gold metallic shell from my stash.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digital Stamps/Sentiment:  Described above
  • Stamp:  Sun (Studio G) 
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Die:  Nellies Multiframes - Ovals
  • Cardstock:  Recollections    
  • White Card Base:  Domtar
