Under a Mexican Sun (CCMC180)





Time for a new sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary and a very quick write up for me! I’ll be away from the computer for a bit and trying to get everything squared away.


This card was made for a gal who is getting married in Mexico next week (my kid’s cheer coach). I wanted to use the colours of Mexico and emulate a warm sunny day.


I used the Plant Hope stamp set, embossed and watercoloured the tree, cut it out and added it with dimensionals. I sponged on the sun and then sponged clouds and stamped the birds from Uncharted Territory using my Stampin’ Write marker.



Come and play along with Create with Connie and Mary this week – we’d love to see what you can do!
