Summer In The City... by Cathy

Hello friends! We are back today with another post for our Summer In The City June theme. This year we are focusing our challenges around music, and this one was one of Kim's dad's favourite songs. He loved playing 'Name the Band' and 'Name the Year' song games as their family headed out in the station wagon with the 8 track. 

Our June Dare is to challenge you to create anything dedicated to the SUMMER! Click the link below to listen to this awesome song.


Welcome everyone! It's getting close to summer but some of us are feeling the heat already! And what do you do if it's Summer in the City (our Dare theme) - you go to the beach! How about a little tropical humor - Tropic Like It's Hot!


This is a very straightforward project done on the blank side of a postcard!  I stamped my image in the corner and then started embossing!

Seth Apter's Sand embossing powder was perfect for this, as were his Baked Velvet colors! 

And the sun was courtesy of Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylics!

There is no wrong or right way - just get your embossing pen and start adding your colors to create a tropical ocean scene!

I added some birds and sentiment with paint pens. I also outlined some of the features of the stamp and added some Maize embossing powder to the sun.

You can see how shiny the powder is - so glossy! And the translucence let's you layer colors. I think it's ready to send back home in the mail!
