Crafty Ann's Challenge - 29 July 2011 - Summertime ......... and the living is easy

Well we had a lovely selection of cards/projects this fortnight at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  Click here to go and have a look for the winner.
The topic this fortnight is "summertime ...... and the living is easy".  Well this gave me a good excuse to get out Crafty Ann's tropical beach scene.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and glittery chalks and then distressed the edges and inked them to add some more definition.  I then used my new Adorables Summer Collection stamp set called Special Friend which included this gorgeous donkey.  I decided he'd be a bit lonely on his own so I stamped it twice and hey presto he has a friend.  I have used three of Crafty Ann's Polished Stone backing papers, a bright yellow, pale blue and dark blue.  The image is mounted on some holographic card which proved a nightmare with the camera flash.  The card is finished off with some lace, sentiment sticker which I have had for 2-3 years and some mosaic gems for some sparkle.
