Mustard Seed Faith Challenge - Traveling Mercies and Seize the Birthday Challenge

Hello Delightful friends and family!  Happy Resurrection Sunday to you all!
Just found this new Christian Challenge blog called Mustard Seed Faith Challenge I just want to give a shout out to them, I recognize a few of the names and what a blessed group of talented ladies on the Design Team! Be sure and visit and link up and read their devotional too.  This weeks theme is "Traveling Mercies" (MSFC #3) so the card below I finished yesterday definitely qualifies!

I've been playing in my craftroom the last couple of days and trying to get some samples done for a class in June at Scrapper's Edge.  So I've got my theme for one class:  "Lovin' Summer" instead of Summer Lovin' which reminds me of the song from Grease! Not really sure if that's the title of the song 😀
 It will be a combination masculine/summer cards. I think this will be one of  the three cards. I've watercolored the background sky and sand/road and also the VW bus and used this cute paper from Doodlebug Designs called Fun in the Sun Collection. I wish the photo was better, the colors on the water color paper are more vivid than what's showing. I used Tombow Markers for all of the coloring and a #12 round brush on the background and a #3 round brush on the van and palm trees. I've also used a black Copic small brush marker for touch ups around the tires.
I think I will add Glossy Accents to the windows and a sequin or two or three (I like odd numbers)around the sentiment and this will be complete. The stamp set I've used is called Surf's Up from Avery Elle.

I haven't played over at Seize the Birthday  in a long while so I will be linking up there too! The challenge is to use 2 different pattern papers.

Have a blessed week! Thanks for visiting.

“And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.” Matthew 28:7
