Welcome to our August edition of Di’s Country INKers blog hop. Whether you’ve arrived from seeing Di’s project or you’re just now joining us, a big welcome to you!
When I think of summer, lots of things come to mind. Sunshine, flowers, birds, picnics, watermelon – these are some of the things I enjoy most at this time of year. My card today is loaded with the flowers from the Swirly Bird stamp set as well as in the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper. If I were a painter, I might be able to compose a picture of a picnic in the sunshine with some sweet watermelon to eat, but since I am a stamper, I have to find other ways to represent some of these things. Instead, I used inks to convey the feeling – Daffodil Delight brings in the sunshine, and Watermelon Wonder is – well, you get the ‘picture’. Oh, and I almost forgot – Cucumber Crush is kind of a picnic-y thing too – HA! My card was accented with some pearls, a little clear Wink of Stella, and a bit of Linen Thread. The sentiment from Watercolor Wings was stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink on a banner made with the Duet Banner punch. (I love how you can get the photopolymer stamps to hold a bend on the acrylic blocks that matches the curve of these banners!)
Thank you so much for stopping by today. If you’re ready to see some more great stuff, I’ll send you off to Kathya to continue on the hop. A full list of all the stops on today’s hop follows. Have a great rest of your day, and take some time to create!
