Totally Gorjuss Challenge 88 - Summertime

We haven't had much of a summer so far, last weekend was as good as it has got!  Yesterday, we had thunder, lightning, rain, hail and sunshine and today it's warm and muggy and we've just had a heavy shower of rain. 

I've made two cards for this challenge both very different, the one below was almost a by product of the second crd as I had intended to use the 'summer' lace word on the other card and sprayed it.  But then it just didn't work and I liked the sprayed paper so much I decided to use it as a background.  If you look carefully you can see the outline where the word was placed.
Dylusions Spray Ink, Summer 'lace' paper, Graphicus Stamps. flowers and button from stash.
Stamp from this month's Craft Stamper, coloured with Inktense pencils, striped paper freebie from Crafts Beautiful.

  1. Two fab cards! Love the riot of colour on the first one and the CS freebie looks very stylish on the second, great job!

  2. They are both gorgeous. I got the CS yesterday - can't wait to try out the stamp - looks so good the way you've done it with inktense. x

  3. These are both lovely Janice but have to say that the top one is my favourite....adore it! xxx

  4. Oh that's beautiful Janice! Makes me feel warmer just looking at it!

  5. ooh Janice, these are both gorgeous - but my favourite is the second one - I love the contrast of those bold stripes to the bright yellow and that pretty image
