Yesterday, I spent the morning doing my not-so-favorite task...accounting. But, afterwards I was off to my craft room for some much needed 'me time'. Since the weather has been so gorgeous here lately, I was really in the mood to make a hot summer time card. I decided to ink up a stamp for the first time.
Here's my card. I hope you like it...
Lazy Summer Days
I used three Magnolia images on this card: Tilda with Skipping Rope; #427 Lazy Summer Flowers; and #420 Lazy Summer Days. These stamps, and many more, are available at Magnolia-licious.
These fun, brightly colored dp's are from the My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary collection. The cs is Bazzill. I cut the image with Nestabilities and then mounted to cs that was also cut with Nestabilities. You know, I didn't know what Nestabilities were until this year and now it seems that I've become a collector and cannot do without them. Anyway, the brads and red ribbon are from my collection and I do not know the maker. The gorgeous yellow polka-dot ribbon was sent to me by my friend Mindy. I was so excited that I could incorporate it into my card. She was so sweet to send me a package of some wonderful stamps and embellies and I can't wait to use them all! Lastly, the flowers are by MS.
As usual, I colored the images with a combination of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger distress inks. Here are the details:
Copics - E00, 02, 41, 43, 44, RV21, W00, 1, 3, 5
DI's - black soot, scattered straw, fired brick, forest moss, shabby shutters, pine needles, tumbled glass, walnut stain
That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I truly appreciate your time and your generous comments.
