* Vera Lane Studio: Summertime

Hello friends!

First, I'd like to say hello and welcome to Sherry Gibson - thank you so much for becoming a follower!

Today I'm sharing my Summertime themed cards for Vera Lane Studio.

Here in the NW of England the weather has been grim this last week. We've had wind and rain and now we're all waiting for the sun to put in an appearance. Meanwhile I've made my own sunshine with some gorgeous Vera Lane digis and bright, sunshine colours.

First up is Sunny - isn't she gorgeous?

All images are coloured with markers and fussy cut. Sunny was popped on foam pads whilst the other stamps were glued directly onto the background.

The background was made by die cutting a stitched rectangle and, whilst the die was still in place, inking it with distress inks and a blending tool. Water droplets were splattered and blotted to remove some of the ink for added interest.

I matted the image onto textured yellow card and then onto a white tent card.

Sunny and the bird were given Glossy Accent eyes and Sunny has glossy buttons too.


Next up is Aloha Hula Girl.

The images were arranged how I wanted them, then printed. They were coloured with markers. The Hula Girl has Glossy Accent eyes and glitter applied to her flower lei and eye lashes. The image is popped on foam pads onto the background.

The background is made from Inkilicious Art Card which has been coloured with distress inks and a baby wipe. This was matted onto pink, tiny polka-dot paper and then attached to a 6 x 6 inch card base. 


I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
You'll find us on Facebook in a closed group, which I invite you all to join! You can find us HERE
