So the weather is still not so summery this morning – bit more summer rain anyone?
But at least I have a summery card to share today.
Which is inspired by the July #18 challenge over at the Making it with Meslyn blog:
“Summer cocktail – recipe – ribbon/sentiment and a splash of citrus”
Here’s my card:
No actual citrus fruits were actually harmed during the making of this card but I love all the zesty colours
The main image is stamped from ‘DIY Topiary’ by Flourishes, and coloured with my watercolour pencils. Popped up on plenty of foam pads.
It reminds me of a lemon tree – even though I know it’s roses!
The background layer is a piece of spotty doily – polka dots *and* a doily! Combined! Yay!
Edges are distressed – Distress Ink ‘Tea Dye’.
A scrap of vellum plus ribbon and twine (The Ribbon Girl) then the ticket topper is a journaling card by American Crafts ‘Just Write – Enchanted Tickets’. Cute.
Got to dash then, see you later alligators,
