Fairies Summer Solstice


Morning Peeps, Saturday morning and a new challenge at Allsorts where this weeks host is Mervi is is in holiday mood with the theme of 'Summer Fun and Sports'. This weeks lucky winner will receive a Summer stamp set and stencil aptly named 'Splash' from Buddly Crafts.

The above card represents the Fairies Summer Solstice so obviously they are having Summer Fun as only Fairies can! A simple to create card starting with Pans Pastels and DI's to create the background, then stamping various Lavinia images with Versafine Clair and finito........I did say it was easy to create.


My second card used a mixture of Chocolate Baroque stamps onto a Oxide background and stamping the focal image which is from Darkroom Door and Distress Markers used direct to stamp adding a spritz of water before stamping. The sentiments are computer generated and I hope reflects the recipient, our Grandsons girlfriend Faith who us keen on water sports including surfing.

There is a diverse take on the theme from my talented teamies, so I hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at their creations.
