Happy Summer Solstice, just!

Hope you managed to get a glimpse of the sun today. It certainly didn't feel like the longest day! When I sat with my coffee at breakfast there was a news bulletin from Stonehenge, and I was reminded of this card I made about a fortnight ago for a work-mate's birthday. The stone circle is a stamp from Non-Sequitur, and the rest are from Inkylicious. I created the background with masks, adirondack inks and ink dusters. I didn't base it on a real place, but the stone circle does remind me of a couple in Derbyshire. (This one particularly)
Thanks for looking!

  5. Those stones are particularly impressive - I'm on slug patrol here so it definitely doesn't feel like Midsummer!

    1. This is just smooth matte(normal)card, Tracy. I used the ink dusters by dabbing them on the ink pad, dabbing them on some scrap paper then dusting onto the card. No blending solution necessary. I promise I will make a start on the videos as soon as I can. Work does interfere with my craft time, lol!

  8. Of course there has to be a stone circle for the summer solstice!
    It was a fairly hot and sunny day over here, so we don't have any reason to complain. It is supposed to rain tomorrow and perhaps on Monday, and I hope this is not an empty promise. We need the rain!
