Dreaming of Summer

Well here on the South Coast and the rest of the UK we can only dream of summer - although at least it stayed dry for my son's sports morning today.

Here on my blog today are 3 ATCs I have made for the Stampman ATC Swap. I haven't done ATCs for a while, but it would be good to do some swapping again.

The theme is summer, so to make these I used the fabulous free stamps from the artist Emma Ball which came from Simply Homemade magazine. The three beach hut ATC was made using a stamp from Docrafts by Michael Powell. All have been coloured with Aquamarkers to give them a soft look. Two of the ATCs have been decoupaged and the deckchairs stamped onto coloured paper to give some depth.

I look forward to seeing the ATCs I will receive in return!

Other challenges I am entering with these:
Everybody Art Challenge - Summer
Paper Crafting Journey - Summer

These are a fabulous way to represent summer Emma and don't we need it? Lovely colours and layouts. perfect for The Stamp Man challenge.
I am supposed to be hanging out the bunting and having a BBQ on Saturday, but I think we will be inside most of the time.
