My Happy Colours

the current impression obsession challenge is to use happy colours (whatever colours make you happy), which i thoroughly enjoyed; i even used a bit of orange.

i created a small easel card to fit on my desk featuring some new impression obsession products i purchased when i was lucky enough to win a $25.00 IO gift card just for playing along.

i used the sentiment and sun from the IO ‘signs of summer‘ (CL873) by Peggy Jo Ackley, and painted with tombow markers on hot pressed watercolour paper; i love the cool colour palette, but i tend to use brighter colours through the summer. i fussy cut the sun to pop it on foam tape and the IO beach chair and sandals (DIE190-C) were layered up five times to hold the card upright; the square panel measures 3 and 3/8 inches. to finish it off, i used the leftover bits from the chair to create my beach fence.

i’m also playing along with Simon Says Wednesday to use a Die and/or Punch.

thanks for popping by.

  1. Oh Linda, I love this happy card with those happy colors! Summer is full of happy color isn’t it?! And the beach is surely a happy place for many. I love the beach too, nice place to visit but I don’t want to live there. lol Love that you made this an easel card for your desk, it sure does produce some happy vibes! Hugs, Brenda

  3. oh wow this is so clever, bright and just overall lovely. What a great idea to mount up to make those sandals, I thought they were an embelishment. Great fence too.
