Let's Hang Out!

Phew - I can't believe how hot it is!!! Such a British thing to always be going on about the weather - we moan when it's too cold and we moan when it's too hot - there's just no pleasing us LOL!!!
Here's a card I made to enter into the 'Seems a Little Sketchy' Challenge #19 -

Image - Lili of the Valley watercoloured with DIs and DI markers.
Papers - October Afternoon 'Campfire'.
Dies - Marianne Design Tree.
Other - Sentiment (freebie from internet), Buttons from stash.

I've been doing loads of practice watercolouring with Distress Inks and the new DI Markers - not so sure you can tell with this image though. And I must be honest, I went a bit crazy colouring blue all around the image and then felt that it really didn't look right at the bottom (it looked like there was 'sky' under the 'tree leaves'!!!!) but rather than bin it, I've tried to salvage the situation by covering it with some tree die cuts - what do you think? Has it worked??
I love to read your comments - thanks to everyone who is kind enough to leave them for me xx And on that note, I'm off to try and get a wink of sleep in the sauna. TTFN............xx

  4. Ha, ha. It may be a British thing to moan about the weather but it is also a Texas thing in the USA. Maybe it's a human thing. :) It has been hot here this summer but no where as hot as LAST year! Today is so much cooler. It almost felt like fall this morning. I love your card! So cute!!The image of the little boy swinging is precious and colored beautifully! I love all the details and the papers. Thanks for joining us at Seems a Little Sketchy and I hope to see you again for this new challenge that went up today.
