July 1st, half the year over and now starts my favorite time of the year-SUMMER! Love the sunshine and the heat- I never complain about being too hot, too cold-now that is another thing!
Summer is filled with flowers and poppies are one of my favorite flowers, probably why I love this background stamp from Stampin' Up!- Pleasant Poppies.
I stamped the flowers using Black Stazon ink and coloured it in with my Blender pen and Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango inks and then used my Daffodil Delight Marker to colour in the centers. I love using my Blender Pens for deep colours, it makes them not so dark but the light colours like the Daffodil Delight, is barely seen when using the blender pen.
The sentiment is from the new Hostess set, Express Yourself with a little Scotch Tape masking to take off the always at the beginning.
