Summer Dreams

Yooooooohoooo :)

I know, Christmas is almost here, but, I fancied doing something completely unrelated for my Make it Crafty Inspiration. I found this Florist's Moss (I'm sure it has some proper name, but I don't know what it is. And. Let me tell you, it makes what I clean out of the cat litter tray smell like pot pourri!) when I was in my local Craft Shop, (looking for something else.) and I thought it would be perfect with Summer Dreams.

I created the background with my Airbrush. I gave it a light base coat using the Chisel nib, then I built up layers with darker colours using the brush nib, which gives it a more splatty look. I also splooshed some ink directly from Re-Inkers. Simples!

This is gorgeous Faye, the colouring is divine as always and I love the way you've given texture to the hat. You a a clever thing, I'm sure I would never have thought of using moss on my cards, but it really does suit the image.

I do have to ask what glue you use to stick on the chipboard word. I have some dies that cut words like this and I always seem to get in a complete goop when I'm gluing them on! :) xx

Pure loveliness is what this is. The Spanish Moss (I think that is what it is called) adds an unexpected twist and texture to enhance the beauty of your image. Wonderful work!

Gorgeous as ever.
Well I've heard cat litter called some names before but never Pot Pourri.
Boo must be using the after shave now he has a lady staying over!!

Love that grass and the purple sky you made for this beauty! How refreshing to see something other than a Christmas creation:)
Sorry I haven't been visiting as much as I'd like to in December, there are things going on all the time, different events, concerts, parties, birthdays and all the last minute shopping and card making. Not in a stressful way, but it limits my computer time. But I'm still here and will check back in my spare moments of this hectic month.
