City Crafter Challenge Blog Week#12

Well,we are still enjoying the warm weather here in the U.K. which is very unusal to have such a long run of good weather,oops I hope I haven't just jinxed it! This week Cheryl is the hostess over at City Crafter Challenge Blog and she has choose to celebrate summer with this weeks theme 'Some Like It Hot'. So the challenge is to create a summer themed project and use the colour red.
Here's my summer card:

The Tilda stamp I used was the very first Magnolia stamp I bought,I coloured her in using Distress Inks,I always use Antique Linen for her skin and Tattered Rose for her rosy cheeks.I decided to give her blonde hair so used Scattered Straw and her swimming costume and bows were coloured in using Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.I cut her out so she could sit on the frame but stamped her legs and the water lines directly on to the card so it looked like she was dangling her feet in the water and used Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky
I used my Nesties to cut out the red scalloped square and cream square then used a dotty embossing folder on the cream card and distressed it using Antique Linen,the red paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Material Girl'.The 'celebrate sunshine' and the flags are from the Dear Lizzy clear stamp set by American Crafts,the great thing about clear stamps is that you can shape them to how you want, which is how I got the curved flags.
I'm off to pack now,we're going to make the most of the weather and go to the seaside for the weekend.Hope the weather stays nice so we can go on the beach and because Paige hasn't got a friend coming this time I'm going to have to go on the fairground rides with her,I'll just close my eyes and scream!

Have a great weekend!
