Yellow is The Summer of Colour

Hi, the Colour of Summer is Yellow.  My offering is a large Postcard. The background was made by blowing alcohol inks through a straw on photo card, edged with Paint Dabbers.  The ticket stamp is a freebie from Craft Stamper Magazine and the fairy was generously supplied by Astrid, http://astridsartisticefforts.blogspot.com/ thank you Astrid, then painted the wings and covered in gloss.


I would also like to enter this into The Stampman Challenge which is Alcohol Inks.

Off now to see all the fab entries for this popular challenge.  Thank you for popping in, have a great day and take care.  Hugs Annette x
