Distressed Summertime


Out of a hat creations are asking for summertime this week and I have just set this months PaperPlay forum atc swap with the theme of distressed summer / nature.  So this is one of my atc's for the swap.  I glued some pieces of text and stuck some pieces of masking tape on the white card.  I coloured the background with violet shade (470.3) and turquoise shade (580.3) pan pastels using the Crafter's Workshop mini harlequin stencil.  I stamped the images in black stazon and added a pearl gem to the centre of the flowers.

I love this stamp and it goes so well with another one I have but I have never thought of a pearl in the centre - great idea.
Lovely atc.
Hugs, Neet xx
