Summer Time

Good morning and how is life treating you this Thursday morning?
Today, is the first Challenge over at the Sweet Lilac Challenge Blog...and the theme is Summer Time...
This is my DT card....I do hope you like it....

I have used Distress inks for the background and a bit of water spritzing...Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed...
The main image is a really lovely new stamp from Hobby is called ...
A Gaggle of Geese....
I stamped it using Vetsafine ink...Vintage Sepia and took the colour away with water...(I do love to do this technique...thanks to Sheena Douglass)

White highlights were added with a gel pen, some ribbon, hat pins and of course the flowers....Sweet Lilac really do supply the most gorgeous flowers.

I needed some white leaves ......and I had one of those moments of inspiration...(I wondered what it was at first .....I am not used to them!!!!) 
I cut one of the flat white flowers into pieces and hey presto....white leaves.

I would love it if you could join in and enter this Challenge....why not pop along and check it out and the other fabulous DT samples....
