CCMC146- Summer Time!

I love summer. A lot!! That's why I get super excited to see the new summer sets in the Summer Mini. I received my pre-order (a benefit of being a demo- woot!) last week and this was the first set I inked up. The colors this week at Create With Connie and Mary really lend themselves to a summer set. I love primary colors!
I ran the Marina Mist through the crimper and then brushed on some Platinum Shimmer Paint.
I pulled apart my Peach Parfait ribbon to create the fibers. Love this technique! It's created so much more variety to my ribbon collection!


I used Crumb Cake and my Color Spritzer Tool, a Stampin' Sponge and the bubble stamp to create a sandy look.

So, what do you see happening with this weeks colors? Get to work and come back to CCMC and show us what you got! You could win some BLOG CANDY!!!
