Distressed Summer

Summer's not a very bright and cheerful this year but I'm still hoping we get some sunny days before we enter the traditionally cold and wet season. So that is the theme for an Atc swap, I started by making a bright background with acrylic paints and distress stains then dulled the whole thing down with weatherwood,


Stamps used Tim Holtz and Inkadinkado
Thanks for looking :)
