This post is so aptly named since yesterday the temps topped 95 here in NC and in this heat wave our air conditioner for the downstairs decided to die. Thus, causing me to have to spend the whole day upstairs in the craft room trying to stay cool. Haha! No wonder playing with the My favorite Things Penguins in Paradise set was my choice for the day.
Not only that, but my fingers were itching to do some coloring for the 30 Day Challenge, and my mind was full of ideas from the Heat Wave class. Seriously that is what's going on right now at Online Card Classes!
Without further ado, let's chill with the card, shall we?
Beginning with a background, I used Peerless Watercolors to create a scene. Next I colored the images with Copics. Then came the fun - embossing. I learned in class that you can emboss with colors over Copics, so I added polka dots to the swim ring using Pool Party Embossing Powder. Another surprise is that if you sprinkle water onto card stock, and douse it with EP, it will stick when you heat it.
Here's a close up for you of the spattered background and embossing detail.
I love the texture it adds and can't wait to try this again.
That's all for now! I am packing a few bags and heading with my dear man (also bringing Josie our beagle) to a nearby hotel. Going to hang out and beat the heat for today.
Hope your'e glad you came by because I sure am! Have a great day and stay cool.
Find delight in your craft.
Make something beautiful!
Accessories: My Favorite Things - Die-namics Blueprints 27. Love these dies, but they are currently out of stock. I turned the frame with windows on it's side for my scene.
I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Weekly challenge.
