Fun in The Sun!

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. Boy have we had our share of sun here in Kansas! Today I am so excited to be sharing this project here at Tuesday Treats.
 I am so in love with Echo Park Splash paper collection.  I started by taking my matting paper and spray a generous amount of Goosebumps spray on it.  This is the first time I have used it.  The results are very subtle. But in person, it looks cool.  This product is a texture spray that makes it look like dewdrops (if you spray light and far away) or puddles (if you spray close and generously).  It only took about 20 minutes to dry.

While my paper was drying, I cut my images from Enjoy the Seasons at 3.0 inches in layers.
To give the pool dimension, I used a small brush and Glossy Accents to fill it in.  I love making these kind of details on my cuts.
While the pool water was drying, I stamped some grosgrain ribbon with Pink By Designs Summer Vacation.  The sentiment says "Fun in the Sun".  I curved the stamp to make a wave effect when I stamped the ribbon.  I use Black Staz On.

I mounted the matting and the ribbon to the card base.
Finally I added my assembled images to the card. I find using pop dots makes all the difference in the world with Imagine cuts.
 I hope you have enjoyed my project! I am always so touched by the lovely comment my readers leave here and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.
