Hanging onto Summer

Hi everyone,

Well can you believe we are now into September. The shops are already full of cozy jumpers and boots which is just as well because the temperature here in the UK has certainly become cooler over the last few days.  You never know though, there's a slim chance we might get an indian summer yet!

Hanging onto the thought of summer I have a postcard for you today - it's for Challenge #73 over at Crafty Cardmakers - 6" x 4" Postcard with a Seaside theme ...

This challenge really had me stumped (which is why this is a last minute entry) but last night I decided to just have a play and here's the result ...




Background is watercolour pencils and distress inks, girl stamp is Dina Wakley, shell stamp is Hero Arts, then some doodling on top. (Think I need a bit more practice with my art journalling style!)

Okay dokes, that's it for now.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Suze xx

Love that edging you've done! Everytime I see that lady stamp I immediately turn green - I really need to buy it I think.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Suze
Definitely much colder!
A fabulous card and I like the edge stamp with the softer images on the background.

You are fast becoming a master of the" arty" style, Suze. I would love to move in that direction and produce something like this.

OMG - just popped over to your blog and found you have made a card a few days ago with the same title as my new post - how co-incidental is that?!! Love the Dina Stamp and the wave edging - looks good! x
