Sunshine Flashback

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Summer may be over for some; but here in the mid-south, it's still steamy.  At Unscripted Sketches, they are celebrating "Flashback Summer" to reflect on Summer's  gone-by.  My card is from Flashback Sketch #69.  Since the sketch is a flashback, it seemed only fitting to use a few stamps from years gone-by.  The flower stamps used here were designed by Dave Brethauer and are from Rubbermoon.  Anyone care to take a guess as to how old they are?  I'm thinking that it's possible that they were purchased in the late 90's.  But maybe a few years later.  I don't remember.
The sentiment is from Ali Edwards.  And I created the background with watercolors.  Watercolors are so, so fun!  I will be using them more often!

I certainly fixed that in a hurry! Proud follower #99!! I always am so impressed by the range of your art and I can't wait to see what comes out of that clever head of yours next...
