I started with Unity Stamps' Glowing & Beautiful stamp set, 140 lb Strathmore watercolor paper and Versafine Onyx black ink. I made sure that the ink had dried before watercoloring. I added the yellow using Mustard Seed distress ink, applied with a water brush. The actual stamp was a bit too large for the black circle, so I fussy cut the bulbs out and adhered it to the black circle, die cut with a Sizzix circle die. I found some patterned paper that went with the yellow of the bulbs. For the sentiment, I used two different stamp sets (one word from each), The Alley Way - an unnamed stamp set and Craftin' Desert Diva's Treasure Trolls stamp set stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink on a strip of yellow cardstock. I adhered everything to a light gray A2 card panel which was then glued to a white A2 card base to complete the card.

Yeah! I think that summer has finally arrived here in the Pacific Northwest. I was starting to wonder if we would ever have sunny, warm days. I mean we did have three sunny, warm days but that was a couple of weeks ago. Since then, it's been cool and cloudy, if not rainy!
It's not really crafting weather when it's so nice out. However, I do love to play with paper. We have a new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, that we hope will inspire you.

Typically at this time of year, it would be refreshing to think about Christmas. However, this summer, it hasn't felt like summer at all, well, except for 3 days! It's been cool and rainy - kind of typical weather for spring in the Pacific Northwest. We're all wondering if summer will ever come. The three day teaser just doesn't seem right!
Nonetheless, it's time for our July Challenge at Die Cut Divas. Our challenge is, yup, you guessed it,
CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Greetings! How are you doing? Hope you're doing well. I'm enjoying a well-deserved week off. I'm supposed to be retired but worked 16 days in June. While my bank account is happy, I didn't really have time to sit and craft, which is really what I love to do. Hopefully, I'll have more crafty time in July.

Well, we had three days of summer weather and then it went back to Spring. I'm not really complaining though. I don't function well when it's hot ... unless I'm at the beach! LOL! Let's cool off and think about Christmas instead. We have a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Christmas Challenge
