Clearly Summer!

Not really! We had a chilly high of around 55 degrees yesterday! Brrrr!

Well, now I can tell you that I am so honored to have been asked to participate in the Copic Creations Challenge!
This wonderful group of women chooses a copic technique twice each month (the first and fifteenth). "Lessons" are showcased on the blog and best of all, YOU are invited to participate to win a prize!
Want all the details and to see these great designers' cards?
Here's the Copic Creations Challenge Blog!
My clear item is his pink lemonade glass. I used a R83, RV32, and RV14 to color his glass. Then I added stickles on top of that.


This was my first CC challenge so I decided to try something new for me. I mounted him on the outside of a Clear Acetate card. On the INSIDE behind him, I glued to background. The I used Purely Pomegranate (stamped with my Plaid bg from All that Scraps) on the back part of the card where we place our sentiments. I'd show that to you, but I stamped it crooked, so I have to come up with Plan B to fix it!
It was tough to photo without glare, and as you can see, I gave up! There is another view on the CC blog.
So please head there to see the other cards and directions for entering your masterpiece!

I hope it's Clearly Summer where you are today!
