Summer Haze

We have had some hot summer days this week; perhaps that is why I ended up stamping with warm yellows and reds again.  Each day this week I have dropped all my children off at camp and had the day to myself-a very rare occurrence. Each time I picked them up my son has asked whether I made a card and uploaded it.  Finally I have one.

I created the picture panel on white cardstock, masking the sun and sky first before sponging in summer sun, apricot and rose red.  I then created the hills with a curved mask and celery and summer sun inks.  The trees were stamped in black while the final  (lowest) mask was still in place. It is not clear in the photo but both the card base and olive strip are textured cardstock,

I hope you are enjoying some great weather wherever you are.  Thanks for dropping in today.

    Heather Wow I love this card. A beautiful one again. Summer colours and I understand that it’s very hot there in Ottawa. Your landscape is gorgeous.

    Good for your son, keeping you on task. 😉 Our weather here is very reminiscent of typical summer Ottawa, hot and muggy. But I don’t mind — better than snow!
    This card is perfect for these hot summer days. As always, I am so in awe of the sponged background you created.

    Your card really does make me think of long hot summer evenings! And no, our summer weather has gone AWOL so you’re making me feel quite wistful!
