Summer of Fun preview day 2

Over at the Crafty Sentiments store Thursday 25th August see the release of our new 'Summer of Fun' rubber stamps, featuring Primrose & Billy, and they are adorable and great fun to work with.

Over the next few days, the DT will be treating you to a preview of the fab images! Then on Thursday we will be having a blog hop, where 4 lucky people will win one of the new character stamps each!

So here we are day 2 of our previews, did you check out all the awesome previews by the rest of the DT, amazing huh?  Well for todays project I have made a tent card and cut my aperture using the largest die of the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets die which I bought whilst on holiday and by applying the technique for being able to have the images over the edge of the die I did a bit of fiddling and managed to cut my aperture with the cute Billy 'Lets Swim' over the aperture.  Mind you I did get a bit annoyed with the fiddly cutting out and Ria came to my rescue! lol but I am really pleased with how it worked out in the end.  I have also used 'Coral Reef set 1' to make up my little scene and coloured in with copics and I added some 3d glaze to his goggles.  The paper inside is from M&MBI paper stack.  Didnt add anything else as I thought it would end up detracting from the scene.  Now dont forget these wonderful new stamps will be available in store from Thursday 25 August.

So to see the fantastic projects the rest of the DT have made for you pop over to the challenge blog and from there you can pop to all the individual blogs.
