Marie

 July is winding down and in a couple days, August is here so I thought I'd better get this summer card posted.  This is Marie, created by Lia Stampz and she's one of Whimsy Stamps July release digis.  The sentiment is also from Whimsy and it is Summertime, designed by Raindrop Echo. The paper is by Prima and Copics were used to colour the image.  The wood button is also Prima and the brads are Bo Bunny. For the sky, I used Bev Rochester’s cloud template,  and gently rubbed in Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink.  This card (now I see I didn't have it sitting very straight) was published in Whimsy's Inspiration magazine which is now available for preorder.   I've had a sneak peak of this magazine and it's worth every penny... it is jam packed with inspiration and tutorials.  The shorter, online and free version is available here.
