I've been meaning to make a hidden shaker (with beads enclosed between my two white focal point mats) for this little Kindred Spirit image "Summer Fun", and I finally got around to it! (We are heading to a backyad barbecue this weekend and thought it would be fun to give our hostess (my DSIL)). Give it a little shake and the little "ch-ch-ch-ch" sound makes me think of running through garden sprinklers!
I colored my image with Koh i-Noor pencils and OMS, and outlined the spray with Stardust Stickles for shimmer. I decided to keep the card fresh and simple with a white on white scheme and just a touch of a green with my striped ribbon(think garden hose! ;). A few strategically placed page pebbles give the feel of stray water drops. The little "happy" is from Just So Hippy, the font that looks really sweet with these Kindred Kids. (and wouldn't the "kick up your heels!" from Jumping for Joy be CUTE with this , too? :)
Have a very safe and happy 4th!
PS I have a bit of NEWS to share later this weekend, please stop back by if you get a chance!
PPS I'm thinking I should extend my contest a few days(Monday or Tuesday), too, with the holdiay weekend, I'm afraid a Sunday deadline just won't give enough people time to participate, what do you think??
