End of Summer Time


Hi Everyone, sorry I seem to be behind with catching up with all your blogs, but things have been rather hectic since coming back from our holidays, I promise to catch up soon. Can you believe we are at the end of August already. In Scotland the nights are starting to get darker earlier in the evening and my beloved little Robin has re-appeared back in my garden. All signs summer time is about to end and the clocks will go back soon and winter will be upon us. So this is where my inspiration for my Cheery Lynn  DT card this week came from.

My card is 8x8 in size and fits the Mega Doily Die perfectly. With this die cut I used patterned paper, dry brushed on some Gesso and inked the edges to give a shabby feel. My Clock, Victorian flourishes and corner dies were cut out in a lilac shade of paper. I stamped a crackle stamp onto the clock and corners and then inked the edges on all these die parts and once again dry brushed some Gesso on.


I added some glitter glue onto my clock face and little diamantés.


My flowers all started off as white cardstock. They were cut out and I added different shades of ink, a little stamping onto the Shasta Daisy for texture and a little flower soft into the centres. My leaves were cut from green card stock and the edges inked.


My butterflies were cut out in pink patterned paper and I used the angel wing to cut out the back of the butterflies in white cardstock, again inking the edges.


Thanks for stopping by today I always appreciate your visits and comments.

  3. Julie, what you create is nothing short of miraculous! Those flowers just look as if they grew in your garden they are so real! I love all the wonderful texture on this gorgeous card. Somehow you have captured in your colour scheme and design a slight wistfulness as we say Goodbye to summer. This is just lovely! I'm getting terribly behind with commenting on blogs and with projects too! Where does the time go? Oops, I guess that's the theme of your card in a way! xxx
