Summer Garden

Summer - if you can call it that in the UK is filled with a variety of flowers of all colours.  We also tend to be very green here - you can blame the rain.

The colours in this image Pippa Loves to Plant are bright and full of the promise of sunshine which we all crave here.  Having said that when it is hot and sunny we do tend to complain then that's is too hot!

I dug out my old faithful ProMarkers to colour this image - not quite got used to using the new Copics yet :)

These stamped images tend to be fairly large but are pretty goo for the old CAS style of card, where you can make the image the focus.

I've used some yellow design papers from Lili of the Valley, black card stock and self adhesive gems.  Some tiny silver dragonfly beads.  The brightly coloured sentiment is part of a sticker set from Paperchase.

I think we've probably had a bit of four seasons in one day here in Yorkshire.
