Keep Cool

Here's my card for the current Fusion challenge.  I combined the sketch with the color scheme from the inspiration photo to create my summery card.

Keep Cool card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Clear and Simple Stamps
I covered a blue card base with a piece of golden yellow dotted paper on top and a strip of solid golden yellow on the bottom, leaving a space between them to stamp the sentiment.  I stamped the lemonade bottle from the Clear and Simple Stamps Summer Fun stamp set twice on white cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers, then cut them out. They're adhered to the cardfront using foam tape for a little dimension.  The set's "keep cool" sentiment was stamped to the right of the bottles in black ink.  I added a touch of sparkle to the simple design with a trio of pale yellow sequins scattered around the bottles.

Materials Used:
Summer Fun stamp set, Perfect Little Black Dress ink, My Style Blueprint, Golden Tiara, and A Blanc Check cardstock (Clear and Simple Stamps); markers (Copic--Y11, Y13, Y18, BG72, YG25, B0000); Lemon Meringue sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); Here is Happy--Record It 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); foam tape
