Summer Afternoon Cycling

I've been having so much fun with the Summer Afternoon hostess set!  

It's not the best coloring job, but I had fun nonetheless.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Summer Afternoon, Itty, Bitty Banners
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Island Indigo, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive)
Paper: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Watercolor
Other:  Big Shot, Argyle EF,  Bitty Banners Framelits, Corner Rounder Punch, Brights Brad, Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo Baker's Twine, Blender Pen, Simply Scored

It will go to a very special "other daughter".  I know she cycles loves to cycle.  She and her bicycle were hit by a car once.  Not hard, thankfully.  She got up and rode the bike home.  She's pretty tough.  And sweet. And beautiful. And so special to us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you come back soon.

This bicycle looks fabulous with Island Indigo. I'm not normally a blue kind of girl but I find myself turning to II more and more. And I *need* this embossing folder too, by the way!

Your watercolouring effect on the bike makes me think of a summer heat haze. x
