It's a HEAT wave

We are definitely in the throes of very hot days here, but I still am loving summer. Being out in the sun makes me want to celebrate! What better place to do that than the beach, right! 

I'm still on the beach theme and using fun brand-new-to-me stamps that illustrate summer fun. As soon as I saw the cute images of kids at the beach I loved the happy feeling and sense of movement in the Sandy Toes set (Waffleflower.) 

I stamped and Copic colored the images, then fussy cut them, enabling me to choose the ones I wanted to use and play with arranging them. The runner is popped up in order to stand out.

For the background I began with a page from the Modern Neutral paper pack (also from Waffleflower) that has patterns of suns rays subtly in gray. I gently ink blended with blues and yellow to create the scene, adding a few dotted images for sand. 

I love this paper pack and super cute kids. I was so tickled with how this card turned out that I just kept looking at it!

I will also share it at the challenges listed below. I hope you can find a way to put a little celebration of summer into your day!
