 Here's my summer vacation card for today! Blue Sky, sand, little butterfly fluttering around and sunshine... sounds good!

I stamped the image using Memento's Espresso Truffle... a dark brown. I thought black may be too heavy for the sand castle. I used B21 for the sky. The other browns I used for the sand castle and ground.... I used the very tip of my pen to make small dots, adding a little texture. I also used the "fur technique" with Copic Blending Solution and a rag to remove some color. For the grass I used BG96 and G82.

Here's the inside of the card. I added another sentiment on the inside from the Summer Clear Set. I always like to use any leftover paper to add a little strip or border die inside. 


  1. Love your card!!!Very Pretty!!!Love your castle!!!

  2. A fantastic summer scene Jenny! Your coloring is amazing!!

  3. Great coloring on your castle... I am almost there!

  4. Great job creating a sandy looking castle! Love the rounded corners on opposite sides and the wrapped twine and butterfly. This is such a fun summer-y card.
