Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Summer Distress Trio

Our challenge this week is to create something using the Tim Holtz summer distress ink colors. Here I am, all set up with my inks and stamps...while hidden in the background are some papers, ribbons, mists, template, that I used.

I inked up a sheet of glossy paper with the three colors-salty ocean, picked raspberry, and mowed if that doesn't say summer, what does? Great challenge for the end of summer! Next I stamped my images out and mounted each on cardboard, then created my background with some patterned paper, stamping, and misting a crafters workshop template over the paper. Decided to create a grid with the ribbon, then add some flowers, pearls and words.

Now, I am ready to enter this into the Simon Says challenge here, and I have the perfect gift for a friend.
