Make My Monday–Summer Scene


Im sorry my blogging last week was nil.. I was so busy with the day job and did zero crafting, but i made up for it yesterday by making my nieces 1st birthday invites, I will be showing you them very soon.. so over to todays Make My Monday Challenge which is create a summer scene…. it doesnt feel much like summer here!! does it where you are??? hopefully it will arrive soon…

heres my card: Inspired by children at play in the park a sure summer scene ‘when the sun’ is shinning…..


I created my card by masking off an area with post it notes, sponging my back ground using Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz, then using the soon to retire stamp from Forever young inked in black for that silhouette look…

Heres a closer look…


Ive then finished off the masked area by using the daisy stamp which is one of the stamps from the ‘Best of’ Flowers set – which is only available until the end of this month and is only £13.95


What ive used;

Stamps – Best of Flowers, Happy Day and Forever Young

Cardstock – Whisper White and Melon Mambo

Ink – Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky and Basic Black

Punch – Itty bitty punch pack and Paper piercing matt / pack.
