When I think of summer, the beach and Adirondack chairs certainly come to mind. In the card below, we have used the green mottled paper to paper-piece the chair cushion. The sand and the water were created with the blue, brown and white Gelatos. In this instance, we just rubbed the Gelatos into the paper without water. I love that this chair image has the drink glass right on the arm. Of course this is an opportunity to add a punch of bright colour. The shore bird die-set from Impression Obsession include both the beach-walkers as well as the lovely crane which we have used inside the card on the verse panel. I'm very fond of the bold font on the salutation, it almost reads as a command to relax.
The towel on the arm of the chair could simply be coloured or paper pieced.
