Summer Relaxation

I've made a card today that is very much suited to the spell of hot weather we're having....

This is based on the colours from our new challenge today at Waltzingmouse Fanatics and the image and the weather just lead me to this card and I wish I was on a beach right now rather than in my hot back bedroom!

This challenge gave me a chance to try out the new inks that we have in store at Make the Day Special Stamp Store - we got the full range of Hero Arts Shadow Inks in, which have been very hard to get hold of in the UK, and I have to say I love them.  I used Tide Pool, Soft Sand and Orange Soda for the background and added the beach hut and umbrella with Wet Cement.  The images and sentiment are all from My Island by Waltzingmouse stamps.

It's a 5 Saturday month which means my other favourite challenge - Less is More - is on an Anything Goes week, so I will be added this card to that challenge too.

Hope those of you who have Waltzingmouse Stamps will join us this fortnight as our numbers are very low just now so the challenge may have to close.....
