Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Summer Fun

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project that celebrates the fun of summer.

When I was in high school, I loved the freedom of summer and made so many special memories with a core group of girlfriends. This image (Girlfriends Silhouette) always reminds me of those times. I filled my watercolor palette with some fresh QoR paints this last week, and added in my favorite Shinhan Opera, so I had some vibrant colors to work with for my background... done with a quick wet-into-wet wash, some splatters, and a little stamping (lifting wet color from one area and stamping it in another.)

The sentiment and arrow are from the Grunge Map clear set.
