Just Saying . . .

Good grief we've actually had a couple of consecutive days of sunny weather so Summer must be here at last . . . just in time for my son going back for the start of the new school term on Wednesday!

For this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge I decided to keep it quite simple - a background using Distress Inks onto some watercolour paper and a stamped image from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden Set. I inked the stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped three images from a single inking. The background was placed onto some black cardstock and finished with a piece of DS Satin ribbon and a small banner which was inked with Barn Door Distress Ink to match the background.
