Summer Swing

Good afternoon everyone!  It is a lovely day here in Southampton, so I was inspired to make a card to reflect the summer-like weather.

The image is one of my own, from Daffy's Digis - only @ Crafty Boots.  I colored her with Pro Markers (of course).  The image layer is die cut with a Grand Nesties die and I distressed it with Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

I used various shades of puple backing papers, with the floral layer being one of my own designs (yes, I am trying my hand at papers as well).

Finally, I thought a paper flower would be a nice addition, and this one, which I got from Create and Craft, happened to match my color scheme perfectly! 

Anyway, I am feeling particularly crafty today, so I think I am going to have a bit more of a play with decolorising techniques... or maybe make another card... or something.   In any event, I have to take advantage of the times that my back is semi-cooperative, since they are few and far between.

Take care, and I do hope you can pop back to my blog soon.

p.s. I absolutely would LOVE to know what you think of the card, paper and digi image.  Please leave a comment if the mood strikes you (constructive criticism welcomed!)

xx Denise
