Hello Summer! (Neat and Tangled release week)

Hi there!

We're kicking off this month's Neat and Tangled release week with some wishful thinking a new set called Hello Summer. ha. I paired it with the watermelon-eating-hippo from Beach Day:

Summer (Neat and Tangled release week)

I did a soft watercolor wash on the background, in turquoise and yellow, and then also watercolored a sandy base for my hippo and seagull to stand on.

It's hard to tell, but I die-cut the word SUMMER from the same watercolored sheet as the sky layer - it's very soft and pretty in real life!

I added the clouds from the Making Waves die set, and colored their edges with a soft blue-green copic marker (BG11).
