You bring sunshine to my life...

Hi All,

We are due another heatwave this week!! yippee, just in time for the Eastbourne free Airshow 'Airbourne.  We are so lucky that it is on my doorstep, the Red Arrows fly over our house during their display!! Very exciting.

Anyway back to my card for today, i used one of my favourite Pennyblack stamps.

I used a sheet of Totally Tropical flowers paper(free from a magazine 2 years ago) designed by Kate Knight designer for the base paper, then i attached a piece of white card embossed with pastel yellow embossing powder, stamp used was a Sizzix Sun background clear stamp, and then distressed the card with Tim Holtz 'peacock feathers' ink.  Then attached a velvet textured piece of orange ribbon.  I stamped the image with Versa fine black ink, and coloured in using Promarkers, i paper pieced her swimsuit and the ducky, and coloured the ducky's beak, and spots using moonlight Sakura pens.  I die cut her out using a Spellbinders circle die and layered her onto a scalloped die cut.  Attached the image then various flowers,gems and finally stamped the text onto some scrap paper distressed with Tim Holtz distressing ink.
