Welcome to Summer!

How is it June already?  That's halfway through this year - why does time fly by so quickly?!?!  I'm ready for another challenge with the Stampendous team today, since it is the first Saturday in June.  Throughout this month we'll be challenging ourselves (and you) to make something that is related to SUMMER!  Want to see what I made to kick off this challenge?

I paired the Changito Surfer rubber stamp with the Changito Pool Party rubber stamp, and added a sentiment from the Perfectly Clear Happy Messages stamp set.  I love how bright and summery this card turned out!  The Echo Park Dots & Stripes Candy Shoppe collection had the perfect papers to go with the images I colored. Although they are two separate stamps, they work well together don't they(I'm feeling super proud of myself, lol!)? 

I colored them both up using my Spectrum Noir markers pens - I am soooooo in love with the vivid color range they have!   Here's a breakdown of what I used:

Changitos: (body) EB5, TN8, TN7; EB2, EB1 (face, hands/feet)
Surfboard: TB4, TB2, TB1 (waves); TN4, OR2, TN3, GB6 (oranges)
Towel: BP6, PP6, BP2, PP3, GB5, GB4
Bikini, Sunscreen bottle: GB5, GB4, OR2
Sand: TN3, TN2, TN1
Sky: BT4, BT2, BT1

To see the colors, check out this downloadable color chart.  There is also a blank one available, to fill in the markers as you acquire them!

Be sure to check out what the rest of my teammates have created for the challenge today:
