Aud Sentiments Challenge #83 Summer


Hi everyone, it's time for some more inspiration for the current challenge at Aud Sentiments.  Before I talk about the challenge I would like to say a sad farewell to our outgoing DT members
and wish them well in blogland. Thank you for all your wonderful creations girls we will miss you.

This of course means that we will be welcoming some new ladies to our team next week. I hope you will make them feel at home.

Now onto the current challenge which is

 ....to use a Summer related sentiment.... Fun in the Sun, Picnic Time, Surfs Up  Use your imagination and have fun!

 
Our sponsor this fortnight is Stamp and Create 
 
 
Here is my inspiration for you
 
 
I was having a play colouring on kraft card and was really happy with how this turned out. The image is from Lili of the Valley and is called Little Mermaid 2. The cross hatch blue stuff on the background is a rub on - don't use them very often I must say. The sun is a die cut piece but you can't have summer without it!! The wave paper is from a Summer Driggs kit called She Sells Sea Shells, and I finished it off with a bit of faux stitching around the die cuts using a white gel pen.
 
Here is a closeup....
 
 
The words are sort of inspired by art journals etc - an area I am finding really interesting at the moment.

This is absolutely stunning. You are right, the colouring on the Kraft Card looks brilliant. The layout and the wording looks gorgeous. Such a beautiful and summery card.
