Hi dear all!
It is so bright and shiny these days here in Romania that I really felt like plunging into summer straight from the winter. It seems we are skipping spring these past few years and jump from boots into sandals. Quite strange though given the temperate continental climate. Well, the calendar says it's spring but "here comes summer!" This is the theme for this week challenge over at Digital Pencil Too where it is week two of the GDT call, my favorite competition these days...he he. Love Mo's drawings and would have joined the fun anyway. Hope many of you will. The Guest designer call will be held on the 1st and 2nd Thursdays of each month so why not take the chance?
Here's my bright summertime card. Yes, those colors are real, take my word...he he. It's a bit too colourful, but I really needed this spot of color these days. Ah, and I love strawberries; I've been eating like mad this past week and I simply adore Mo's Strawberry Girl. Isn't she the cutest creature ever? I colored the image with Promarkers and chalks for the sky ( I followed Cabio's amazing tutorial for coloring sky only that I used chalks instead of distress inks. Thanks sweetie!). I also added some Flowersoft on the grass.
Hope you like my card- well, I did...at least it looks yummmy:))
