This fun image "Sprinkler",is part of new release from Serendipity Stamps. This image just made me smile! I can totally remember running through the sprinkler in the hot summer months! I used paper from the popular 6x6 Basic Grey pad Konnichiwa.
I cut the image out using Spellbinder's Labels 22. I pierced around the edge of the inside of the die before removing the image. Around the edges I used Spiced Marmalade (Distress Ink) to add a little color to the edge. I used Y00 to add a soft yellow in the background first before coloring the image.
It's hard to see in the pic but I used a Viva Clear  Glass Gel Pen to over parts of the water to give it a shiny, wet look.  On the banner I used Scor Pal tape to wrap the jute string around, keeping the string in place as I wound it around the paper. Foam tape under the image and banner to pop it up a little bit. Finished card is A2 size.
