Colours of Summer


'Colours of Summer', is the new challenge theme starting over at Try it on Tuesdays today.
I always think of summer as being warm and sunny, sitting in the garden, looking at the  flowers brightly coloured with the butterflies and bees hovering around.
Well when you finish having a smile  at my ideal  world, one can only hope for this sort of  weather in the UK  and enjoy it when we can.
The base of this card was  dry embossed using an Embossalicious   leaf folder. The distress ink  colours I used for shading were Spiced Marmalade and Fern Green.
The images are all Joffy stamps from Paper Artsy, I used pencils to colour them.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, I always appreciate the comments you leave.
