Summer Fun: Jill

Friendship * Sunshine * Critters * Flowers 
Join us over the next several weeks as we share cards that draw inspiration from the happiness of summer fun.

Every summer I dream of planting a garden full of flowers... but alas, it never seems to get done! Heehee! :)  But at least I have managed to "grow" some blooms in the craft room.

On this card, I've combined Penny Black's beautiful brushstroke stamp, 40-546 Dancing Daisies, with the die cut corner element, 51-351 Pop Up Floral Corner.  The background was painted with watercolors, stamped lightly with a script (PB 40-470), and then I also applied a light layer of gesso to tone down the script stamping and give it a slight white-washed effect.  The edges were inked with Distress Ink using an ink blending tool and a foam pad.  
The main panel was stamped using my MISTI and Tombow Dual Brush Pens, blending the stamped impression with a paintbrush and water.
Stay tuned... Elizabeth will be back soon with more summer fun!
