Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 21, Day 4

Hello all and welcome to Day 4 of my Peachy Keen GD week!  Ok going from Christmas right back to Summer where we belong :-) My project today shows Lulee's Swim Time (PK-780 Lulee's Swim Time) on a fancy fold card.

Again I colored Lulee with my Copics and on her fins I used the feather blending technique. I also received a few emails asking what paper and ink I use. When coloring with Copics I always use Memento dye ink pads for stamping the image. And as far as it comes to the paper for coloring with Copics: Curious Metallic Cryogen White is my all time favorite. Papers are from 'Softly Summer 2' collection. Flowers are from my stash and punches and dies used are from MS, Spellbinders and Marianne Design. I also like to use spacers with the brads when using them as flower centers. Makes them more pop.

Close-up on the image:

As I mentioned above this is a fancy fold card. I used a little velcro dot to hold it shut.

The inside is barely decorated to keep the card flat and it closes more easily.

Materials used:

Stamp:  PK-780 Lulee's Swim Time
Designer Paper: - Digi Papers Softly Summer 2
Coloring: Copics & Prisma pencils
Flowers: Prima
Dies and Punches: Spellbinders, Martha Stewart, Marianne Design
Embellishments: Button, pearls, brads, Stickles, glitter, ribbon slider

Thanks so much for taking the time and dropping buy today!
