Every little thing is gonna be alright

Happy Summer Everyone!!!  First off let me apologize to my faithful readers on my absence....It has been a long month.. First off, we have been crazy  busy around the Brown house with all kinds of functions and BBQ's, then we had a flu bug rip through this house and hit everyone over a week and a half, then my dear son Liam, decided to head butt me, and in the process he cracked my needless to say my creativity has been at an all time low, until I received this digi stamp from Scrapbook Stamp Society.  This is Molly - Fishin Fun by Heather Valentin.  I just loved how summery this stamp is!  It reminds me of our upcoming vacation fishing in Northern Ontario.

I started by making my card using Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer Collection. I just love how summery this collection feels!  Next I used my American Crafts Knock Out Punches to make the borders.  I highlighted the blue waves with my Stickles - Star Dust.

Next I used my Circle Punch and my Scalloped Circle Punch to make the sun.  I edge the scalloped layer with my Prima Chalk Ink in Rusty Keys, then put a foam dot in the center and then put the next circle on top...This added some dimension and then I used my Prima Chalk Ink in Coldfoot Petals to edge it and some Stickles to make it sparkle.  For the clouds, I stamped them with Versamark and Zing Embossing Powder in Wave then punched them out with corresponding Fiskars Cloud Punches in Large & XL. 
 I coloured in Molly with my watercolour Pencils, then added a bit of Silver and Gold Mister Hueys to it.  I also added some sparkle to make her eyes pop.  I placed a foam dot behind the butterfly to make it look like it was flying off the page.

Thanks for taking time to view my work!
