Summer Fun

I decided to play around in my favourite way, using the last two sets of Distress inks, Spring and Summer, with water on glossy card.  There are bits of Resist, bits of text, bits of doodling and lots of fun on this one and I really enjoyed making it.

I probably should have journalled this because I almost finished it off with bit of random doodling of the thoughts in my head, which were all about stepping out of reach of the ‘safety net’ and taking risks…

Anyway, this is my entry for KCUK’s July Challenge, which is Summer Fun and the challenge over at Sir Stampalot is…

‘…….. What’s your Crafty Passion ? ……..’

High on the list of my crafty passions are inky, texty backgrounds, doodling, glossy card and words, so this fits all of those 🙂

Have a great week and thank you to all of you who sent me lovely, supportive messages – you know who you are – and you’re VERY much appreciated!
