Summer's Here

Good Morning, Everyone

I am delighted to say that I am Guest Designer

this week where the theme is:

Summer's Here

I do hope you will be able to join in with the challenge.
I  was lucky enough to be able to use this lovely new digital 
stamp by Lindsay E Jolly called Summer Sun Ellen, 

 I think you will agree she is beautiful.

One lucky person will have the chance to win
Three images from LEJ Designs

One person will have the chance to win a
£10 gift voucher for Joanna Sheen's online store.

Don't forget there is also a special draw for entries
using an image from LEJDesigns which is a rolling jackpot.

Good Luck to all.

I have made a hybrid card today. (A mixture of digital 
and paper items.) I coloured Ellen in with
Promarker Pens and her glasses are highlighted with a
Sakura stardust pen and I used this to give 
her a belly piercing. She is mounted on foam to sit proud of the card.

I created my own background using an assorment of 
materials (not a background) in Craft Artist Professional.   I resized and reshaped 
items to represent sky, sea and sand.
I made the little glass by using a tag and
ribbons and a hat pin and resizing and rearranging.
The beach mat was a little embellishment
which i adjusted.
I used a sigle leaf and resized and organised to 
produce the foliage. I made the little bag and contents
to give you a clue where Ellen is sunbathing!
I printed my background onto photopaper which I 
mounted onto turquoise glitter paper. All of this
I mounted onto Kraft card. Two adjacent sides of the border
I stamped with seahorses and the other two
covered with Washi tape.Oh and I added a shell
from my stash.
