Lexi’s Creations 93 Summer Holidays

Hi it’s challenge time again at Lexi’s Creations and we are sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts with a choice of 5 digis from the Fairy Dust store, and our theme is ‘Summer Holidays’. I am beginning to wonder if we are actually going to get a proper Summer here in the UK, as up until about two weeks ago I really needed my heating on, and today it feels like that again. Anyhow, just in case we ever get hot, this is my vision for the Summer.

The image is a House Mouse stamp I have had for ages but, to my shame, I don’t believe I have ever coloured it up before! It’s called Beach Cooler. I coloured it with my promarkers and then stamped it a second and third time, so that I could decoupage up the flowers and add a couple to the top corner of the image.

I went over the ice cubes and the thermometer with diamond glaze. The thermometer doesn’t look all raggedy with the naked eye, but it’s amazing what the camera picks up! the starfish and small shells are real shells. I wish I could remember where I got them from.

The backing paper is from Joanna Sheen’s House Mouse CDrom. There is also a digi of this same stamp on that cdrom, but I already owned the lush wooden stamp, and it’s one of the few makes I haven’t removed the wooden blocks from, as the coloured images on the front are just too gorgeous to throw away.

I did actually turn this into a birthday card for someone, but I had to remove the shells as they hadn’t a hope in hades of making it through Royal Fail without being completely shattered and so instead I put a further sentiment, which like the top one I printed onto Letraset’s Safmat, where the shells were. It also made it nice and flat for posting!
