Inky Paws Challenge #134 - Summer!

i can't help it - i've been singing this song all day because of the new challenge!! ha ha!

that's right!
this month's Inky Paws Challenge on the Newton's Nook blog is all about summer!

and the July release was just PERFECT inspiration for this challenge, don't you think?
i may have taken this challenge a little too literal, because i just HAD to use the new Paradise Palms stamp set! 

i started by using my Distress Markers and coloring directly onto my image. then i stamped it onto the paper! sooooo pretty! once my images were all stamped, i stamped over the images with VersaMark embossing ink and then heat embossed clear powder on top of the images - that secured the 'colors' in place for my images! :)

lastly, i used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and did some watercoloring right on top of it all! so FUN!! the sentiment is from the Dog Days of Summer stamp set, and it was heat embossed in white onto a strip of black cardstock! :)

so that's my card! be sure to head over to the challenge and play along for a chance to win some Newton's Nook of your own!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
