Colours of Summer


Happy Tuesday everyone! Over at Try it on Tuesday we are welcoming the Colours of Summer. Not an easy one for me with my naturally neutral pallet but must confess I enjoyed adding a little colour! 

Lots of inky, painty fun in the background with some stencilling with Tim Holtz doilly stencil. I do like adding some tissue tape to my backgrounds too. My roses image is from one of Tim Holtz ephemera packs - but I made it smaller and added some ink. I have recently learned how to make a rose - hope you like it. A stamped and punched butterfly was added for good measure and better composition!

Do hop over to TIOT to see what the girls have come up with.

I would like to submit my summer roses into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking
Nikki
