Something Summer!


The challenge at "Stamp Something" this week is "Something Summer!"

I am entering a very simple card which I think is quite summery. I've used Magenta "Summer Meadow" for the main image. I heat embossed it with clear powder and then coloured over the top. The butterfly is from the Elusive Images "Butterfly Blush" plate, I stamped it in a pale yellow ink and then overstamped it in orange using a Crafty Individals crackle stamp, before cutting it out. The base card has been run through the Big Shot in a Crafts Too 5" x 5" embossing folder.

Time for a cuppa now! Enjoy your day.

Hugs, Clare xx

Love how this looks so different from the one you did a couple of posts ago. The bright orange and yellow really make it change.
