Summer scene

Today is another great day.
This is my first day as an official DT member for
I still can't believe that such a beginner like me could be a member of two wonderful DT's. Dreams come true, people!

My first DT card for Crafty Creations is for the challenge called
I've decided to make a stepper card and a real summer scene.
This is the card where I have used digis from different artists: Sliekje, Carina's Pysselsida, ScrapHappy Paper Crafter and Otaku-no-Bijutsu. By clicking their names you will go direct to those freebies.
I didn't use too much embelishment here: just a drink umbrella, groats (as a beach sand) and shells brought to me by my friend from last year's holiday at the Baltic Sea. I've concentrated on the 'scene' itself more. So, here we have two kids playing at the beach and there's a boat sailing in the background (I have no idea why the sky appeared at the photo as pink: it's a blue paper with pink butterflies!). I added a little of glitter glue to show the water's sparkle.
And here's their Granny relaxing with a drink in her hand under an umbrella.
The digis are being colored with watercolors. And if you know some good free stepper card template, please let me know. I waisted three sheets of paper to cut the card and even then I had to correct the last one - the dimensions on the template were not right! Meh...
Anyway I've had a lot of fun while making this card. 'Vamos a la playa!'
Soooo, grab your crafting tools and make a scene! A summer scene!
