Summer Honey

Hello!  The gorgeous Authentique Free Bird Series Endless & Fair Weather 6x6 Paper Pad from Craft-A-Lot has been beckoning to me lately.  I love the patterns and the rich colours.  So I thought I'd do a little paper piecing with a CC Designs stamp called Honey - Summer, also available from Craft-A-Lot.

That little bathing cap was just crying out for a cute pattern, don't you think?  :-)

The circle behind Honey - Summer is coloured using Distress Inks.  One of the things I love about Distress Inks is how you can combine colours to get the perfect shade.  I got this shade by blending Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Iced Spruce, which is from the Limited Edition Christmas Distress Inks.  Love it!

And this is the sketch I used:

Thanks for stopping by!  :-)
