June Key Ingredients Subscription Kit

Hi everyone! Want to see June's Key Ingredients Subscription Kit from Taylored Expressions? Here it is! The Prism Papers, DP, Flowers, Ribbon, and Candy Dots are all part of this month's kit. Note: the candy dots that come in the kit are white. I colored them with my Prisma pencils.



For this month's blog hop, Taylor challenged us to make a card or gift for any June event we chose and to create some dimension on the project by any method. We were told to step away from the Copics for this one challenge. Here's what I came up with.

I look forward to June because it's the official start of summer....going to the beach, bright colors, warm temperatures, flowers, etc., so my card is themed around all these things. I LOVE summer! ...yeah, you probably know that already, right? LOL!

My main image was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Taylor's Choice White CS, colored with Prisma Pencils, and blended with Gamsol. I added some orange stickles to the two orange umbrellas and platinum stickles to the sand.

For the dimension, the image was stamped three times.....once on the deckled rectangle panel, all three umbrellas were cut from the second one and popped up on foam tape over the base, and then I cut a third orange umbrella (just the one on the left) and popped that up on another layer of foam tape. The large orange flower is also up on foam tape. Here's a close-up so you can see the dimension and stickles:
