Summer Dreams

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
It's been so long since I colored something and made a card! I enjoyed my month off very much, but was so excited to get my markers out again this morning and do some coloring! 

Since we aren't having a release this month at Whimsy, we thought it would be fun to showcase some older summer themed stamps this month. 
I decided to ink up "Goldie" from Whimsy's Wee stamps collection. Isn't she adorable!!! 


I used copics for coloring and watercolor paints for the background. I actually wanted to do the bokeh technique, which I did, but for some reason it isn't showing very well. 
The sentiment (which I also stamped in turquoise ink on the background) is part of a set illustrated by Crissy Armstrong - Summer Garden.

I am entering my card here:

This is so cute! I love the image, the scene you created, how you did the sentiment, and the glittery bubbles.
