An Evening Treat

Warm evenings and ice cream will soon be a fond memory as the nights start to get colder here in Wisconsin.  I could stand for a warmer fall and spring, but I do love our summers here.

Juliet and Austin were colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  Austin's legs cut and moved so he could sit on the picnic bench.  I masked the lanterns and ink blended the background with Distress Oxides.  The sentiment was white heat embossed and the tops were inked with Copic Marker.  The lanterns were colored yellow with regular Distress Ink using a finger dauber.  I then used the dauber and yellow acrylic paint to create the circular glow around the lanterns

Purple Onion Designs Stamps: Juliet, Austin, Lantern String, Sunshiny Sentiment Set
Dies:  Lawn Fawn Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps
Ink/Paint:  LF Jet Black, Clear, DOx Wilted Violet, Milled Lavender, Faded Jeans, Black Soot, Jenni Bowlin Lemon Drops acrylic paint

Thanks for coming over to visit!
May the Lord bless you today!
