Thinking of Summer


Snow again for a couple of days in my part of the UK, so what better to think about  than summer.
I searched out my Darkroom door stamps, this image of the bike propped against the tree is a favourite of mine. We used the cycle quite a bit in summer when on family holidays.  The only addition to the image is a touch of antique linen distress ink.
The base layer is from  Prima  Moulin Rouge collection. Another layer is a piece of linen.
The die cuts are Memory Box and were sent to me by  a friend who doesn't blog.
To finish, I added a strip of open weave calico, satin ribbon and lace.
