Warm Summer Colours

Well we haven't had much of a warm summer this year, fingers crossed for a beautiful Indian Summer instead!

I made this card quite a while ago and it has gone to the recipient for his birthday. The image is LOTV stamp 'in the country' and love the cute dog - perfect for the person it was made for!  I've coloured the image with my Copic pens, and apologise for the wonky picture (it's actually a wee bit wonky in real life too - hence all the flowers across the bottom!)

The flowers are die cut from ordinary paper then painted with H2Os, shaped a little and layered up. The paint makes them quite stiff and they hold their shape.  Here's the card:

The patterned papers are scraps from my digi print out box and I've added embossed faux stitching around the edges and inked with brown chalk ink.  The tiny flowers are punched with  MS Hydrangea punch and the leaves are created with an old punch/emboss punch in my stash.  The swirls, scallop trim and flowers are all created with Marianne Design dies, these ones .. ..

swirls from LR0116
flowers from LR0106 with centre stamens from LR0105
scallop edge die in CR1273

Creative Inspirations new theme is for warm colours, so I shall enter my card with them. And, the Papertake Weekly theme is anything goes, so I can join them too.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.  I plan on messing about with my new craft paints and bits and bobs .. .. one of my visitors said that what I was making would make a nice fridge magnet so I will have to get some magnetic sheets for the back of my 'things' .. .. hope to share with you soon!
