Strawberry Fields

Simon Says Stamp has a challenge with summer fruits or fruity colours, as I don´t have any stamps with fruits I worked with the colours. I stamped the paper edges instead of distressing them and I´m very pleased with the result.
The fab sketch is from Funky Fairies weekly challenge. They have some lovely digi downloads, I often use them if I´m out of a paper, so easy to print out at home. They have some free downloads if you want to try. I´ve been thinking of trying some digiscrapping, but at the moment I only have cardmaking on my mind!

Stamp and ink: Tim Holtz flower swirls, I only used parts of this stamp, ink fromVersa Color.

Papers: the green papers are Bazzill,the paper with green flowery swirls is from Funky Fairies, the red is Maja Design, and the vanilla coloured is ordinary crafting paper.

Misc: Sissix beach dies, gems and small flower punch from Panduro, small leaves and butterflie from my stash, I added some bling with a Sakura pen and some glossy effects with Magic Dimension (they doesn´t really show on the pic, but the sunglasses and bucket have some gloss), I cut the photo corners and the ric rac edges with scissors.

Here we have yet another sunny and hot day, so we´re off to the beach. Have a nice day!
