July is here and we are in the midst of Summer at the Four Seasons challenge blog. A new challenge starts today so come join us with all your summer creations! As always we have a fun mood board to inspire you but it is totally optional as Anything Summer Goes!!
Here is what I made for this month:
And here is our moodboard that inspired this creation. I'm sure you all know by now that I absolutely love being inspired by a mood board.
The image is an oldie wood mounted stamp by Penny Black
...Making Lemonade and is hard to find, but there is a clear set
available which includes this stamp at a smaller scale -
Homemade. I stamped the image on Bristol
Vellum paper, colored with Zig Clean Color brush pens and then fussy cut. The
background was done using the
Faux Shiplap technique. The floor and trim were made with a
die set by Penny Black. Sentiment and
lemon slice die are oldies from Whimsy Stamps and no longer available. And I
used Martha Stewart punches, also old, to make the flowers and leaves. A
little Stickles glitter glue finishes off the card.
This challenge runs until July 25th so there is plenty of time to join us with a summer themed creation! Hope to see you there!
