A Summer Snooze

Hi everyone.  Sorry that I've been missing for so long but things here are a little challenging at present!!

Anyway today I thought I'd share another card with you that I made using that Penny Black Make A Wish clear stamp set.  (As I think a lot of you already know I just love this set and so I thought I'd enter this card into the Penny Black at Allsorts June Challenge.)

The background paper is by Basic Grey, the wording came from my Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet and the imagery was coloured with Copics.  And talking of  'Copics', I am now
Copic Certified!!!  Hurray!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a closer look at the main panel for you.

I also added some subtle sparkle to the dandelion heads using the Clear Spica pen. Hopefully you can see it a little clearer here!!

All products and materials used on this card came from The Glitter Pot.

Hope you like it!!

Hi Kay,

Congratulations on becoming Copic Certified. From what I've read on Marion Walker's blog it's quite intense.

I do hope that your back is somewhat easier these days.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Craft Barn Extravaganza, especially the 3 workshops I did. Naturally new crafty stash just leapt into my crafty mitts lol. And I have actually used some of it lol!

But you were missed.

Great card by the way. But they always are.

Hugs, Pauline x
