Pool party!

Everybody into the pool! Our weather has been just great during May and so far June is no different! While I had some bright colors out for yesterday's card I also colored this image up in some of my favorite colors for summer-hot pink, orange and aqua. Love them! I just love this craft of ours where if I want Bella to have a sparkly pool noodle she can have one! I also used Crystal effects on Bronte's tube and the swimmies Bella is wearing. Mo's image Pool Party was just perfect for the colors. Of course, I got it colored and had no idea what papers I was going to use! So even though I colored her on Monday, it took me a couple of hours to finish the rest of the card on Tuesday evening!
The image reminds me of High school when we had to wear those hated bathing caps in the school pool! But I think Bella is in for more fun than we had. I have no idea how she got all her hair into that thing, though!
I was able to use some much neglected supplies on the card.
I used some Core-dinations paper with the swirl CB embossing folder and then sanded like crazy to reveal the core of the paper. Then I uncovered my sand castle EK Success punch for the border at the bottom.
My image was colored with my NEVER neglected copic markers in the following colors:
E000, E11 and R30-skin
BG10, BG11, BG72 suit
R20, R21, RV14 and RV25 pinks
YR21, YR12, Y38, YR04 oranges
E31, E33, and E35 beach and W00, W2 and W3 around the image.
Wishing YOU a great Wednesday (wow the days fly by!)

Cheryl you never cease to amaze me with your fantastic work. What a great image from MO. Must be a new one or I have missed it somehow. How DID she get her hair under that cap??? * giggle. Great job :o)
