'Enjoy Summer', DT layout for Inkido.

Today it is my turn to post on the Inkido blog.
This layout was also made for Yasmines challenge on the Inkido blog this month.
 The idea is to use a mask/stencil as well as stamping on your project

I used a mix of older and newer collections for this page. 
I do like me some fussy cutting and the 'Sunshine' papers have an abundance of pretty roses to cut out and use as decorations.

I thought the beautiful Ingvild Bolme resin park bench by Prima ( Thanks sweet Eila!! ) would be a good match for the photo and evoke feelings of sitting in a beautiful rose garden.

I used a large number of lovely Inkido blooms on this lo and also some red half pearls. I find they are much more versatile than I understood from the beginning. They can be decorations in their own right and not just added a pearl here or there to adorn some other embellishment.

For the challenge I chose a small brick mask and a swirl stamp from the extensive Inkido collection. They have so many stamps that you will find one for any occasion.

Some details of my paper distressing and stitched borders. 
I added a couple of safety pins as well as a slightly humorous touch.

 Finally the title is made using a slightly older Prima textile alphabet, I just love that style and size. 
I actually had to be a little extra creative to change the letters to form my word as some letters were missing. But as fellow creative people you know that anything that works is fine! :) 

I hope you enjoyed my page and thanks for any messages you may leave me!

Be sure to visit Inkido to check out the challenge.
