Summer Sizzler


I started off by colouring an mdf plaque with honey dew, haystack, autumn fire, smoked paprika, zesty zing, claret and blood orange.


I stamped a mixture of my new LP stamp plates from CVC's, LP001 and LP011, along with PA minis, script and splatter in coloured stazon ink, black, mustard, pumpkin and blaze red.  I hi-lighted with both a black and a white posca pen.

Summer Sizzler is this months CVC's challenge theme and again I've gone with a summer colour combo.

Yes, definitely a summer sizzler with those hot colours! That's a fab stamp and I love your highlights and lowlights. That's the best white highlighting I've seen and must get one of those pens. I've tried several different sorts and none of them work as well as yours.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
