Summer in your mind

Well if we cannot have summer outside I'm getting some here.   Have you been looking round at all the wonderful summer inspired projects that people are sharing?    It is northern hemisphere summer in blogland for sure.

For this image some glossy card was coloured with Adirondack inks and ink dusters.  with green, yellow and blue in place a piece of paper was torn and red brushed over the split.   Clarity stamps stamped in more Adirondack ink then coloured with Le Plume solvent pens.   The dragonfly and top of red mushroom, leaf and snails shell given some sparkle and shine with Sakura glitter gel pens.    The base card was just stamped with Clarity corners.

These are the challenges that kick started my indoor summer
Fashionable stamping - Nature
The Squirrel and the Fox - Make it Sparkle
Sweet Stampin - Summer fun
Stampin' for the Week-end - Bugs and Butterflies
