Summer Sweetness

I am so fed up with all this rain, I needed a summery pick me up and what better than Little Sun Kissed Summer Sweetness from Whimsy Stamps?  Bright and cheerful with a touch of vintage.  I’ve had these papers for a while now and wasn’t feeling them ….. till I started pulling out delish flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and I was set.


Coloured with copic markers, I used:

Skin – E11, 00, 000, 0000 R20
Hair – E55, 53, 51, 50
Turquoise - BG15, 13, 11, 10
Red - R35, 24, 14
Watermelon - G45, 43, 20; R24, 22, 20
Stool: E79, 74, 70
Kitten – C5, 3, 1, 0


I gave the seam binding a good old scrunch to add to the vintage feel.  The pearl brad I picked up at Hobbycraft, 12 for £2 (I think) – a bargain for sure.  The key I got from Ebay, I bought like a hundred of them ….. what I’m going to do with that many is anyone’s guess lol.


And the goodies from WOC that I used are:

Mixed pastel magnolias QVR-029
White wild roses (30mm) QVR-014
White open roses 10mm MKX-013
Mixed red & white sweetheart blossoms MKX-638
Mixed pastel apple blossoms MKX-469
White rose buds 8mm GST-003
Mixed blue/aqua self adhesive pearls MKX-320
Vintage seam binding Bay Leaf MKX-488
