Summer Fun



Hi there! I ran across two challenges that were all about summer fun and I couldn't resist playing along. So what does a carousel horse have to do with summer? Vacation! Most of our vacations include a day or two at a theme park and my favorite ride is the carousel. {I love horses!} The colors were determined by the Colour Q Color Challenge #140 and we were asked to make a "summer-y" creation with those colors while the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #136 called for a "summer time" theme. I love it when you can combine challenges and it's my first time playing along with the later challenge. I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #149 as my inspiration and the only deviation was the placement of the ribbon and using a paper rose instead of a sentiment. :) Below is the Colour Q inspiration photo with our challenge colours.




and the sketch...




There's still time to play in all three challenges but the sketch & color challenge are wrapping up in a day or two. Thanks for taking a peek at my card today and I hope you enjoy your summertime activities this weekend. If the weather cooperates {in western Tennessee} we'll be on the lake enjoying fun in the sun activities. :-)

Wow, what a cool image, love how you've colored parts of it. Yep, I agree a carousel horse definitely says summer to me, too. My youngest loves them. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week.

WOW..you nailed the color scheme PERFECTLY! I love that there are such bright and vibrant colors but yet it takes nothing away from the subtle image of the vintage carousel horse. Beautiful work L1.
