Summer Fun


Hello! Have you been enjoying the flowers of summer?  Today my card is a collage of sorts with summer flowers and insects inspired by the Photo Challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  I pulled colors, the theme of flowers,  and the layout (similar placement of colors) from the photo shown below.  I used 6 stamps from Repeat Impressions and one from GKD, a Rose, with Distress Inks, Memento Inks, a Blue glaze pen, Versamark ink, and Red EP.  Papers were all from stash including a strip of Vellum for the sentiment.  This is a different look for me.....a cross between abstract, watercolor, collage and just a bit of fun of doing whatever! Great for all those Anything Goes Challenges.

Fabulous take on our inspiration photo! The bit of vellum is the perfect way to showcase a sentiment without covering up any of the beautiful background. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
