Summer Field

Happy Friday. Yesterday was my Birthday it was very different but a nice day was had.
Granddaughter and I were up early baking chocolate cup cakes to be honest we are running a little short on home baking bits so that was really all we could muster, they were indeed very scrummy though! In the afternoon Daughter popped round for a surprise visit we sat in the garden 2 metres apart but then it started raining , Katie sheltered under a tree on a chair and we popped into the conservatory so we could carry on chatting, I am sure we will laugh about this in times to come.
Anyways I did manage a few hours in my craft room and I had seen a challenge on Country View Challenges that I love the sound of  "Summer Fields"
So here we go my card with that theme in mind
 I used Studio Light Paper pad , I love this one I only have 5 pages left ((eeeks!!))
I doodled around the edge with a black fine micron pen.

To start of I used Inkwell Stamps Meadow Row
I have had this a good few years now , I always suddenly remember it and dig it out
I also used a Sunflower Stamp Set this is also very old , I am not sure who made it but I have hunted high and low and can't see it anywhere, but saying that there really are some lovely Sunflower Stamps out there I might even treat myself!
To colour up I used
Inktense Water Colours
Alcohol Markers

I also used a few stamp sets that were freebie's from my magazines
Wild Flowers
The Country of an Edwardian Lady (Bee)
Layered Peonies (Sentiment)
I used some Glossy Accents on the Bee's wings along with a sprinkling of glitter.
Layering some pieces up so they popped of the page
I also used a few elements from MJM Design Studios - I have a few of Michelle's collection I love them and they are very handy to make either complete projects or to use parts with other things in your stash
I finished of using Distress Oxide to dust round and a white marker for some detail
Thank you so much for stopping by
and I hope you enjoy walking through my "Summer Field"
