Terry was thinking what she could make because of the fab weather lately, so she made a Summer Card. She used Vintage Photo, Dried Marigold, Rusty Hinge and Stormy Sky on the card and borders and the fabulous Graphic 45 papers On the Boardwalk were used on the background. On top of the sentiment she placed the Crackle Accents to give it that extra something. The borders are made with the EK success Fleur de Lis Punch.Dan

The flowers on the Victorian vixen's hat were colorized using Cut N Dry Pen Nibs and various Distress Ink colors.

The inside includes another fairy stamped with Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime stamp set.Tim's post about using the new glassine paper and Perfect Pearls, she had to try it! The technique really added some shimmer to the glassine paper. She chose to adhere them to a "standing card", using the new Alterations Easel die. Tim's "burnt edge" technique was used to distress the edges, and an acrylic charm from Darcie Heater adds some color with a romantic flair.

After a really busy week I settled down to make some tags. I ripped some paper from Tim Holtz's Lost and Found paper stack and distressed all the edges of the tags with a Tonic Edge Distresser ... which just happens to be one of my favourite tools. The background stamps are Bitty Grunge and the tags are finished off with some Adornments.Simon Says Stamp is once again giving away a $50 gift voucher!
