Daisy Doodles #64 Here Comes The Sun (Please!)

Over at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges we have a new challenge today

Here Comes The Sun

We want to see anything which has the sunshine colours of Orange or Yellow


For my card I have used Ice ‘n’ A Slice which has 2 images and comes in 3 formats for only $3. Head over to the Daisy Doodles Store to check these out and all the other great digi’s that are available !

I coloured the image in varying shades of yellow Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding a very pale blue/grey for the ice cubes. I’ve even stippled a darker yellow on the lemon skin to emulate the dimples on a lemon’s surface. It was a lovely image to colour in and the other one in the set with the bubbles and umbrella is fun. 

The pale yellow cardstock has been used for all matting and layering and the patterned paper is from a First Edition pad called Family Ties. I added some small gems to finish off and a sentiment by Meljen Designs which has been die cut and mounted on 3d foam.

Nothing screams summer more than quenching your thirst with a refreshing glass of lemonade and although we are having the most miserable of summers here in the UK in our household we are getting through plenty of lemon squash, we just need the weather to go with it please J

I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there from the rest of the DT and we look forward to seeing your entries in for our Here Comes The Sun Challenge

I'll see you again next time with another lovely Daisy Doodles design.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A5
Papers – Family Ties First Edition pad by Dovecraft
Sentiment – Meljen Designs
Tools - 3d Foam pads, Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Marianne Creatables die
Embellishments – small gems
Techniques – Die cutting

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
