August 2016 Calendar Page

...and then all the sudden....BAM! It's August!

Here's my calendar page for this month. Totally lovin' how it turned out!

I used the Crafter's Companion Walls and Corners stamp set from the Textures Artist Collection to stamp the sun rays. Quick and easy - just inked up with 3 colors of Distress Inks. Then I tapped on some Moonlight Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, and stamped on the page. Super sparkly in real life!

For the fun and funky sunglasses, I used Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - French 50's Cafe stamp set. I treated a piece of white cardstock with anti-static pouch, then stamped 3 different colors of Distress Inks. Then I quickly added clear embossing powder and heat embossed. Once cooled, I colored the lens area with Spectrum Noir Markers IG8, IG6, IG4 and IG2. Lastly, I used a Versamark Ink marker to color over the glasses, added clear embossing powder, then heat embossed.

After trimming out the sunglasses, I inked around the edges to finish them off so the white paper didn't show. They look really cool! I adhered the green and blue glasses flat, then popped up the red pair.

Have a happy day!
