AAA Cards Summer Fun ...

Morning ... Sunday morning and the start of a new week and a new challenge at AAA Cards ... I hope your are all set for some fun this summer because that is just what we are looking for:


This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers and you are in with a chance to win a gift certificate ... as the saying goes, you have to be in it to win it ... so get creating!  

For me summer just isn't summer without a trip to the seaside (often in the rain!) so I took a selection of images to create this:



I stamped the images with versafine onyx black ink and coloured them using Zig markers before adhering them to the card base using foam adhesive.  Added the sentiment and called it done!

I do hope that you will join in the challenge and I look forward to seeing your cards in the gallery.

Enjoy!

You have the chance to win a copy of this new colouring book.  I've taken a couple of pages from the book to show you the different images.


The main part has been coloured with Inktense pencils and a waterbrush


The second panel could not be more different both in design but also in colour choices - from the subtle floral above to the not so subtle below:


This time I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers


If you pop along to the blog you will be able to download a sampler and join in with the fun ... you could be the winner!
