Summer colours challenge

Well this fortnight's Stamp Man challenge of Anything goes/Summer colours, has come at just the right time. I have a morning off work and......gasp......the sun is shining! I'm trying not to look it in the eye in case I frighten it and it runs off again! 

I'm in the middle of sorting out thank you cards for Miss Little Legs' teachers- she's had a brilliant year with them, so I've used this challenge as a kick start to get making!!

I used a gorgeous Stampendous cling stamp from the Stamp Man called Garden Background. Stunner, isn't it? I used my faithful watercolour pencils to add a bit of colour and then drew it out with a wet paintbrush.

I added some little bluey purple gems for added bling, and a border of pink and green paper from my stash. The butterfly strip is made with a Martha Stewart punch.

There's a Stamp Man voucher waiting for the winner, so show us your summer colours!


  1. It's gorgeous.I love the rich colours of the flower.
