Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #23

Hello there!  I'm joining in with Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge, Summer Lovin'!  The graphic for this is so FUN, I had to play along!

Never met a bright color I could resist lol!  Plus I wish I was sitting in one of those chairs right about now, how about you?

To start my card I took some white card stock, and using the back of the beach ball stamp from Beach Party I inked it up with various Distress Inks, sprayed with a mist of water, and stamped.  When my paper was completely dry I stamped the beach ball using black ink over top of the colors.  I also used the Distress Inks and water with a paint brush to make the splatters.  I cut the bottom of my white panel using a curvy die from Avery Elle and place it on a Kraft card stock base.  The focal image is from Newton's Summer Vacation and I colored it with Copic markers.  I tucked some pattern papers and a piece of a doily behind the focal panel, and finished the card with some bakers twine.

This was really a fun card to make, hope it inspires!  Thanks for stopping by today :)
