Indian Summer????

Er...nope...sitting here with the heating on, thank you very much!!!!
To try and get the warm feeling back, I've been playing with some hot and summery colours instead!
I made the background firstly by spritzing with Dylusions inks, then over stamping with some text,dots, sequin waste etc etc..
I cut the flower heads (a Memory Box die) and stamped them with text before glueing down onto the background. A little black shading to give a nice messy distressed look, and then a stamped 'sunshine' word to finish.
Does it make me feel any warmer? um....put the kettle on and pass me a woolly cardie!!!!
I'm entering this into The Stampman Challenge  "Summer Sizzlers -use hot colours".
Love Trish xxxxx
