Hello friends and good evening! I think that the temps dropped down to a balmy 84 degrees last night....ack! But I'm staying in the air, so it's not bothering me! The heat advisory is supposed to be lifted late tonight and cool off just a bit this weekend. However, I'm hearing that the heat is supposed to come right back next week...so I may be staying in next week to craft some more as well! :)
I've decided to get out my Magnolias and have a play this afternoon to create a fun Summer scene. So this is what I've come up with:
Isn't she a doll? I've had this water dock stamp (that Tilda is sitting on) for quite a while now and I just bought this sitting Tilda not too long ago. (although I do believe it's an older one.) I've paired them with a beach scene digital stamp from Make It Crafty and colored it all in.
The sky was done by stamping a solid circle stamp in Versamark above the palm trees and then going over the whole sky with various colors of chalk. Of course I had to make the water sparkle! The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
This is a pretty simple creation as far as not adding very many embellishments to it, but I just didn't think it needed to have very many embellishments on it without taking away from the pretty scenery! :)
I just love a mid-Summer evening sunset, don't you?!...especially on a beach! Oh how I wish I was Tilda with my feet sticking in the water!! LOL!
I wanted to add this to a few Magnolia challenges going on too:
MDU - Create a scene
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Summer Bash -beach theme (blog hop)
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Summer colors
That's it for now from me. I hope that you are staying away from the heat or at least finding a way to beat it like my friend Tilda here! :) Thanks so much for checking in with me! I sure enjoy reading what you all have to say! BIG HUGS!
