Tag Tuesday Challenge #58 - Summer

Louise's challenge this week is summer. I apologize up front because I must be in a rut because I finished my tag and realized I used the same colors as last weeks tag and my card from yesterday. (Either that or I haven't put away my inks!)

I have this beautiful set of stamps from Artistic Outpost called Bloom and Grow that I have been wanting to ink up.  When I thought of summer I thought of our summer flowers.  Marigolds are one of our hardier annuals that we grow in the summer. They don't mind the heat and last all summer beautifully. They are so cheery and sunny! I decided to use the seed packet stamp and accent it with a few butterflies from the Hero Arts Engravings stamp set.

The paper is yellow pattern paper. I stamped the words using versamark and clear embossed. I then sponged the entire surface using Spiced Marmalade with a little touch of cocoa! :)

I hope the weather is beautiful where you are!

  7. Gorgeous tag Sue. I love Artistic Outpost stamps although I only have one set at present. The resist background is really effective and so is the extra layering.

    I suppose a lot of people over here would say we are having fabulous weather but for me personally it's far too hot. I hate feeling so hot and sticky all the time and we are not geared up to this sort of heat with air conditioned indoors and certainly not in our homes. That's why I prefer Spring and Autumn.
