Inspired by Summer



Yep, it's scheduled yet again and hopefully popping up on the right day to tell you about our new challenge at Allsorts where Tracy would like to see work inspired by Summer. Our sponsor is Whimsy Stamps.

Naturally my mind went to flowers and the quintessential Summer Rose and a beautiful Emily Dickinson short poem.

I printed the poem onto white linen cardstock............although it looks far from white in my photo............inked the Penny Black wood mounted stamp with distress markers and spritzed with water before stamping twice. I then simply matted and layered onto coordinating cardstock and added an organza bow and glittery ribbon slide.

Happy weekend all, I'm still on my hollybobs so see you all towards the end of the month.

  17. Hi Brenda, just on a catch up - and I hope you're having a lovely time visiting all those beautiful places. I read that you had previously turned off your comments box - I'm probably a bit late in saying this, but folk visit you to see your lovely creations and also because it's a lovely friendly place to visit, and not for the comment in return.
    This is another lovely card, flowers look so pretty watercolored.
    Hugs, Avril xx
