Sunny Days xx

Well I'm back today with a card that I actually coloured with my polychromos  yesterday but never got round to finishing it as I had another one of those days and ended up having an afternoon nap to try to ease the old headache!!!

Anyway what do you think to my colouring I'm quite surprised to say it was my first attempt but I don't think the camera has done the images any justice they look so much better in the flesh.

On the my images I decided to go with the surf look for a hot sunny day on your summer holidays which I don't think we will be seeing this year.
I have used some natural hessian behind the images and I have also used a strand to thread these yummy beads where I have also dangled a beautiful starfish.  For the top to cover the large dollop of glue out came the hessian again and I used two threads to make the bow and to tie it together finally a blue button. 

Tilda with her surfboard looking slightly flushed from the sun or have I overdone the rouge!!!! lol  Added stickle's and glossy accents.
The whole card where you can see the lovely distressed seaside papers which are just perfect for this scene.  Added a pile of shells to the bottom a lovely gift from Anne over at Midweek Magnolia (she sent me some lovely stamped images to play with).
Edwin with his surf board and lots of stickles.
Finally a side view of the card.
