Life Is a Picnic

Hey everyone! I have a great summer card to share today that I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers.
Isn't it so cute! I love how all the images...even the little ones...have a matching die. This is a new set from My Favorite Things called Life Is a Picnic.
I have a little tip on using one of the Florescent markers. When I colored the leaves on the hat - I used CG1 and CG2. The color was fine -- but they didn't really stand out enough from the color of the hat. To brighten up the green, I colored over the leaves with FL3. It worked perfectly! You can see in the close-up that they don't look florescent at all...they just look bright. I did the same thing on the other leaves and grass.
I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed white. A few touches of glitter added on the flowers and sun to give it a nice summer sparkle. :)  I love coloring stamped images!
Have you played the Spectrum Noir Challenge this month? Our theme for July is "Summer"  You still have time! Get all the details HERE.

Just delightful Lori. Teal and orange is one of my favourite colour combos and you have used it so creatively here.
