Summer Days



Summer Days is the new Challenge theme this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
 So,  think of summer, flowers, gardens, holidays etc, this is what we would like to see on your project.  Remember we would like you to keep to our Shabby Chic/Vintage style.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have been making this week.

I decided that after all the rain and awful weather we have been having in the N.E. of England a trip to somewhere a lot warmer would be a great destination.
The background papers are mainly Graphics 45, torn and shaded with Vintage photo distress inks.
A couple of layers were embossed, sorry cannot name the maker of the folders I used.
The lady enjoying cooling her feet in the sea is a Crafty Individuals stamp. { I have been using this a few times recently and she still doesn't have a sun tan, }.
 I used water colours and distress markers to colour the image and the sea, with a bit of glitter to accent the ripples.

I will also be entering ,  C.R.A.F.T. challenge 162  - Splashy/Water themed.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
