Summer forever

The nights are getting cooler here but the days are still lovely so I thought another summer scene would be appropriate.  It won’t be long before it is all autumn colours. Unlike others who are already posting their Christmas designs, I can’t seem to stamp too much out of season. I guess I am inspired by whatever’s happening outside.

This is the type of scene that I usually do on a one layer card but I think it works with a thin black mat also. I sponged a blue and green background between two masks before removing the masks and adding the tree and sentiment.

Have a great weekend.


Stamps: Trees (Darkroom Door) Season of Friendship (SU)

    Lovely, Heather! That sentiment really works well with this, too — friends make summer last forever in our hearts. And I do like this on a colored CS background, too, with the thin black framing it. Lovely!

    Gorgeous Heather! I rather like the glimpses of pale blue card stock too and the thin black mat. I know what you mean about Christmas cards. Ideally I’d make them in December but that’s never going to work!

    I adore this card! Love the panel on the black mat (I’m a sucker for a little black). The colors are a beautiful combination.
