Hope you've had a good week! We've been an a small trip to a rented cottage by the seaside. Love the seaside when the weather is as hot it is now. They've been talking about a tropical heatwave coming up here. He he, tropical and Sweden are as far as they can be from each other in my mind. Anyhow, we'll need some cooling colours in the heatwave :)
Decor papers: an old Funky Fairys (sadly they don't excist any more) and one that I stamped and coloured with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls
Stamps: Tilda,text and label from Magnolia, Impression Obsession for the decor paper
Colours: Derwent watercolour pens, Liquid Pearls, Stickles
Tools: Sisslitz swirl die, Spellbinders oval and butterfly, QK leaves and flower, Cuttlebug flower
Ribbon, brads and dew drops are from my stash.
The flowers are made by several layers of die cuts fastened with brads, sprayed with water and curled up. For the orange flower I made a paper with my acrylics and Perfect Pearls to get the wanted colour. For the smaller ones I used some small scrap pieces.
