Summer Colours

I had some spare time this morning, so made this card which qualifies for several challenges.
The background is randomly stamped with assorted circle stamps from Stampin Up. I used DI in scattered straw, spun sugar, and evergreen bough. The main image is an old Stampendous one which I stamped onto a snippet from my scrap box, coloured with Sakura Jellyroll glaze pens, and then trimmed it a bit smaller using a scalloped rectangle die. I edged it with a black sharpie, and also lightly coloured the card background with pink chalk.

Challenges -
Paperbabe Inspiration - (inspired by the circles)
Rubberdance - pink, yellow and green
Stamping Sensations - use a stamp and die
Artistic Stamper - a/g with a stamp
Southern Girls - a/g
Pixies Crafty Workshop- snippets

  1. Hi Glennis
    thank you for entering the playground with your stunning card. I love how you have created your own background paper and co-ordinated this perfectly with your image. What a clever idea to outline the scallop in black - it makes it really pop!
