 close up of the image

I coloured the image with my promarkers then used my marmalade Distressed Ink around the image. Cut out then matted onto a spellbinder die. The DP is K & CO Hotscotch. Added some Raffia. I made a beach bag and a pin wheel as embellishments with some oddments of paper. A few Gems to  finish off. Hot spicy  colours to reflex the heat of summer. Hopefully now the children break up for the school holidays the weather will be kind to them and their parents
Well I hope that you like my little card and you can find some time to come and play along we look forward to seeing what you make.

Let's Get Distressing at Creative Inspirations - GDT

Hi folks hope your well I am here today to share with you my Creative Inspirations GDT card. This week we would like to see Distressing on your creations.
I am so sorry I am not visiting anyone yet again the sky engineer has been out and still we have no internet so thankfully I am grabbing a little time at my brothers and using his to post my cards. So onto the challenge at Creative Inspirations
For my card I have used a stamp by Lili of the Valley. Love this little stamp. I haven’t inked her up for a while so a good excuse to get her out. 

I have colour the stamp with my promarkers. My DP is from a old pad which I have had for far too long. I think it maybe either Basic Grey or Dovecraft. I am trying hard to use these pads up. I have distressed. all the layers and then used my distress ink pads on the edges. Embossed a piece of card with a birds & swirls embossing folder then inked over it. A piece of lace and some ribbon along with a few pearls to finish. The sentiment is a Anna Griffin one. I will be giving this to one of the teachers at nephew's school who is retiring. there is actually 3 of them so expect more to be posted at later date.
Well that’s my card for your inspiration don’t forget to checkout the design teams creations.

Thanks for calling and I will be back shortly stay safe,
