Good Afternoon my Dears, Well as my title says "here comes Summer" we've had 3 days of glorious sunshine, no rain, wind or dark skies. My goodness what a difference it makes to feel the suns warmth. I do hope I'm not jinxing it by my announcement. lol.
Anyway on to my card, this is a first for me, two new Magnolia stamps and my first time ever at masking an image and creating a sky, woohooo!! the girl did it. lol
I've used sweet Tilda with butterfly and the barrow of flowers, I've coloured them with a mixture of pro markers and derwent water colour pencils. For the sky I used TH broken china distress ink.
I followed the lovely sketch created by Mindy Baxter from Magnolia - Licious Highlites Challenge
I've also incorporated lots of lovely bits and bobs from other challenges which are listed below this post as well as my recipe for the card.
I'm off now back into the garden to enjoy this lovely weather before it disappears on me. I'll catch you all a little later with hopefully another finished project. In the meantime I hope you all have a wonderful day where ever you are.
