We’ve had two beautiful days in a row here in Southern Ontario with temperatures between 68F – 75F with a light breeze blowing. Love it, love it, love it. We are definitely summer people; not winter people at all. Yesterday we bought the garden flowers and I planted them all- but we didn’t buy quite enough so today we back to the nursery and bought some more. I waited until after 4:00 to plant them so they weren’t planted in the hottest part of the day. The garden looks lovely.

Today’s card is another one from an Art Impression stamp.

This is from the Golden Oldie section and it was fun to colour. Once again I used coloured pencils and blended them with gamsol. The sky and grass is chalk. I had that piece of dark blue in the stash and it was the same size as the image so I just used the Spellbinder deckle edge die to cut the image down a bit and glued it on. I like the dark blue behind the light image. The background is more scraps from the stash bin and once it was all assembled it was glued to the card base. The sentiment was a silver peel-off that I sponged with alcohol inks to turn dark blue.

That’s all for a lovely summer Friday, May 25, 2018. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I’ll be back on Monday with another card.
