.... Hello! Here's another in my series of scheduled posts. It's the 17th of the month and that means it's time for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party. The theme this month is Summertime Fun. I had the idea of making a card with the big strawberry as I just love strawberries and cream in the summer, but this is what I made instead:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - My Island, North Shore, Free Spirit Boy
Inks: Distress - Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Promarkers - Carmine, Cocktail Pink, Amber, Pumpkin, Orange
Later this summer, we are going to Mexico for our family holiday - will be so nice to have Jonathan with us! The thought of the tropical warmth lead me to a tropical sunset and this fab North Shore image. I created the sunset using Distress Inks (thanks to Anya for a wonderful tutorial on U-Tube). I stamped the North Shore directly onto the card in Versafine giving a lovely crisp image. I added the perfect sentiment from My Island and finished off the front with my favourite hibiscus flowers. I stamped the flowers twice onto white card and coloured them with Promarkers; I cut out the centre flower and adhered it with dimensional gel.
