Stampendous Summer Theme Challenge

This month Stampendous is hosting a Summer Challenge. 
Create as many cards as you can using a Summer Theme and this leaves the possibilities endless.  Summer Weddings, Summer Birthday’s, the list goes on and on.
Today I am featuring a card using the Cling Daffodil Girl CRW 071.  I also added some of the beautiful Fran*tage Essentials, such as Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel, Gold Halo Glitter, Crushed Champagne Glitter and Tea Stained Mica Fragments.
Using the Fran*tage technique is simple and the results you get are beautiful.  I taught a class this weekend creating this card and all students LOVED it. 
To achieve, simply sprinkle on the desired color of enamel and then start layering all of the “toppings” such as Glass Glitter, Mica Fragments, Halo Glitter.  There is no need for any fixative, such as embossing ink, we will be melting all of the Essentials together from underneath the paper.
The Stampendous Cling Daffodil Girl was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  The sentiment is from the set that can be won this month for playing along, Friendly Phrases Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.
The Stampendous Gals have been busy this week.  We’d love it if you’d take a look at what they have been creating for our Summer Challenge,
Don't forget, we want YOU to play along with us!  Simply make a summer themed project of some sort and add the direct link for your project to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than Thursday, June 28 at 11:59 PM EST .  You do not have to use Stampendous products, but we sure love it when you do!  As an extra incentive for playing along, one lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous new Friendly Phrases Perfectly Clear stamp set:

As an even bigger incentive, if you use Stampendous products on your project, that entry will count twice, which increases your chances of winning!  Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you have a chance to play along with us (you an enter as many times as you'd like!) this month...Happy Crafting!
