Summer Time

Good evening.

here is a card for 2 challenges:

Totally Papercrafts Eyes down, Look in and let's play bingo from which I chose ribbons, brads and flowers
Crafty Catz #89 - Colours of Summer

Stamps used - Sea scene - Chocolate baroque
Daisy - Sheena Douglass.

The scene was stamped with Stazon on water colour paper, coloured with Distress Ink, cut out and embossed with a Nestie and matted onto the yellow Nestie shape which was edge tinted with Wild Honey distress ink.

The flowery back ground paper was some that I have had for years. This was layered onto yellow card and attached with orange brads. The yellow and orange ribbons were plaited wrapped around the edge of the matted layers and secured in position on the front (where it would be hidden by the image) with Pinflair glue. This assembly was attached to the A5 orangy-yellow base card.

The image was attached to the front of the card with more Pinflair glue, raising it quite high to clear the ribbons.

The daisies were stamped on to white card and painted using Sheena's fusion techniques. When dry they were cut out and again Pinflair glue was used to attach them to the card.
