Crafts-Too Summer Days 1

Thanks for joining me today with my DT sample for the second challenge at Crafts-Too Challenge You. With all the wonderful weather we’ve had in the UK it seems apt to have a Summer Days project and the twist for the next fortnight is ‘Fun in the Sun’.
I decided to go shabby chic for this week as I have used rather a lot of ‘hot’ colours recently.
The image comes from the Graphics Fairy and this lovely girl has been collecting flowers from the garden. I love it when the fruits of the hard work in the garden can be seen and I can go out and cut fresh blooms to have indoors.
I collected together some embellishments and couldn't resist putting this heart and skeleton leaf together. (The heart is from a pack of place labels for a wedding).
The border paper is from G45 and I added some fabric tape from Crafts-Too.
I painted the gauze fabric with white acrylic and a tiny bit of walnut stain DI and used flowers from my box that I collect together. You can just see part of a metal corner also painted white.
The Tim Holtz distressed doily was die was cut in white card and edged with walnut stain and I added a piece of paper measuring tape and a ticket (does anyone recognise it, I can't find it in my supplies and I don't know where it's from and it's really bugging me lol).
There are so many things we enjoy when the weather is sunny.
We would love to see your projects linked to this theme at C2CU for the next fortnight so come on over and join in the fun.

Thanks for visiting and taking a look at my card.

Have a fun week.
