Summer Hop Week 1

I have teamed up with a number of other Cardmakers on Instagram to participate in the summer hop. This involves producing a summer themed card every Friday throughout July. Here is my first contribution. When I think of summer I think of long days playing in the park and the surrounding fields on my bike so felt this was quite fitting

Card Making Supplies 
LRDS Walk In The Park clear Stamp Set 
Heffy Doodle Stitched Slimline Die
Spectrum Noir Illustrators

I cut a piece of white alcohol friendly card using the die, stamped the image and coloured in the following blends

This was adhered onto a red slim
