Weekly challenge Hero Arts - SUMMER!
I didn't think this theme was easy, but it gets you thinking. Actually, once again the HA gallery provided just one little bit of inspiration which opened new possibilities for stamping once again - would never have thought of it myself!
The background of the image is a pot of Geraniums which I took last summer in Spain. It was sitting on a wall on the terras of our Hotel. Geraniums are a summer plant and can be seen everywhere in the Mediterranean region. I softened it up in Photoshop and printed it out, then stamped over the top with my collage stamp. Stamped the words 'I' and 'summer' on left-over scraps and attached them to the card - then I added a butterfly to the summer scene.
I'm adding this one today (Thursday) as it has the same theme - only this time the background is a photo of my lavender bushes and I added 'France' as the senitment.
