Summer Days


I made the frame from the cabinet and mini cabinet dies from T!m Holtz.  Painted with pansy fresco paint and stamped in black stazon with a row of birds from a TH stamp plate and I'm sorry, I don't know where the words are from.

The main image is from the same stamp plate as the words.  I coloured it with distress ink markers, gave it a couple of spritzes of water before stamping.  This gave a lovely watercolour effect against the stark white card.

Why not join in with us this week over at Out of a Hat Creations with your 'summer days'.
