Little Tangles Challenge # 70

I'm whipping in here with a few hours to spare, so I can join the Little Tangles  challenge this month!

This month they have given us some inspiration from Pinterest in the form of this Summery photo:

All that cool, blue water looks divine against the bright umbrellas and fresh, green grass. Its sunny here today but definitely not swimming weather in the middle of Winter!!

I decided to be inspired by the colours in this photo and grabbed some ink pads:

As you can see by my photo, there isn't a whole lot of sun here at this time of year but at least it isn't raining and frosty!!

I stamped floral images from Neat and Tangled 'Scandinavian Prints' on some white CS using red, green, orange and blue inks (the red is from Altenew 'Crimson' and the other colours from Waffle Flower 'Chirp Chirp', 'Daydreaming' and 'Oh Happy Day'), and then black ink for the flower details. After fussy cutting them all out, I used double sided tape and foam tape to arrange the flowers around the sentiment (from the same stamp set) so there was dimension with the design. I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for a little shine and that was it. 

I'm also going to link this to three other challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)


Uniko Studio Challenge # 34 (CAS Floral)

AAA Card Challenge # 69 (one favourite stash item - mine is fussy cutting scissors)

Whew, didn't think I would get this done in time. The joys of being a last minute crafter but I don't find I get really good ideas if I have heaps of time. Am I the only one who does this??? 

Off to take the dogs for a walk. I have another card thats half finished for this challenge too but I don't think it will get finished in the next two hours. Will have to see how fast I can make the dogs run......

Take care
