Summer in print

I am delighted to be in print again..this time in the August edition of Craft Stamper...
If you don't buy the mag, when you're next in WH Smiths have a peep...I'm on page 57.

The brief for my card was "Summer meadows", the colours were yellow, green, mauve and purple with wildflowers, sunshine and delicate floral forms.
These ideas were translated by me into my version of summer meadows. I went for a very CAS card this time.

I used my 3 shades of distress inks and created a background for my stamp.
I then stamped my Inkyliscious meadow stamp 
I die cut an oval into my card and also die cut some of my TH wildflowers using some inky card

below is my finished card
and here it is in the's such fun seeing them together.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Sweet stampin 2/3  holidays/summer
Noor anything goes

I had a lovely time with Daisy on Monday and yesterday us 3 girlies managed lunch at the seaside in the sunshine. Bliss.
