Hi there friends! It's my turn to host the Just Us Girls Photo Challenge #634 this week! I chose this photo because a) it is almost summer and b) I love all the elements in it that you can take to make a card, tag or other project! A bike, flowers, a basket, the colors, or a combo of some/all of those things! Here is what I came up with, followed by the challenge photo. I am also entering it over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies here, Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes here and Time Out Challenges #214 here.

Thanks So Much
Products I used:
HoneyBee Stamps: Riding By Stamp set
My Favorite Things: Palm Tree dies
The Greetery: Postal dies
Hero Arts: tropical flower
Handmade cloud stencil
Flora and Fauna: Shell stamps
Distress Oxide inks
Ink blender brushes
I started by taking the color of the VW van in the photo and converting it into the idea of an ocean and beach...so then I knew I would have to add palm trees! Since it was becoming a beach scene, I had to give it a postcard look with my postal dies. I cut a cloud stencil by hand and ink blended the sky, then masked off the water and sand portions, ink blending each separately. I die cut the bike, basket and its contents, and put it all together. Then I built the scene. Fun!!!
Hope it made you smile and get that summer feeling going!
