"Welcome Summer" feat. Lawn Fawn!

Happy first day of summer everyone!! :)
It's franci ( friday finally)  here today with a cute Lawn Fawn card to celebrate the season!
Here's what i created..

Those whales are my fave stamps ever! they are soo pretty! 
So today i decided to create a happy and fun card to get into the summer happiness! 
Finally summer arrived also here in Milan after lots of super rainy days, the sun always shines in the sky and everything make me think about the sea and the ocean.. about vacations!! :)
That's why i dusted all my "summer stamp set" and i started to create this fun ocean scene.
As always i first die cut a stitched rectangle and i gave it some color with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress inks. I sprayied some water to achieve this cool bubble effect and i let it dry completely. Then i stamped all my images on some with cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and i colored them with my copics. I fussy cut them and i added some details with a white gelly roll pen. The whales are from the Whale you be mine stamps set and the fishes, the rocks and the seaweeds are from the Fintastic friends stamp set. All by Lawn Fawn! :)
I die cut my letters for the "Summer" word from some white cardstock and i used Spiced Marmelade, Picked Raspberry and Cracked Pistachio to gave them a super light color shade.
Next i stamped my clothline on the background with the same black ink used before. I adhered all my pieces down and i also stamped all the clothespins on the letters.
And the card is finished! 
Here's a little detail..

Those fishes .. they jump the rope!! And i always giggle when i look at them! ahah!! :) 
Hope you like my project and thank you so so much for stopping by today! ;)
Have a lovely day! 
Happy summer! 
franci :)
