Summer is quickly slipping away

Our Alaska summer has been absolutely glorious. I just love summer days in the 70's! Our flowers are now at their prime! But oh summer is quickly passing us by. I know because it is a now a little twilight when I go to bed at midnight and it is dark in the middle of the night.

I have been stamping but haven't been on the computer so much to post. So here are a few of my recent pieces. I am continuing to play the Thinking Inking series on Ranger and Hero Arts products on 2 peas.

This card used dimensional pearls for the background. The butterful is 3 D-stamped with Stazon on acetate and stickles added to the back. Folded on both sides of the body and placed on pop dots.

This is a clear acetate card. The green paper is a not a part of the card. The flower image was stamped on sticky backed canvas. The centers are embellished with dimensional pearls and stickles. The edge of card is highlighted with pearl dabber paint.

I used handmade paper for this card and began with color the hitting the high spots directly with distress ink, then wet it with glitz mist and embossing with the cuttlebug. Add more distress ink.
The paper flower was painted with marigold crackle paint and when dry highlighted with fired brick distress ink.

I had great fun playing with dabber paints and a little grunge board.

Hope you are enjoying your summer too!
