Vintage Summer Memories

Oh those beautiful summer days and summer memories.  Today’s TCP set is one that’s perfect in celebrating all those wonderful long lazy times, it’s called Vintage Summer.

I chose to play with the largest image in the set, this pretty scene with the little boy giving some wildflowers to his girl.  Because it’s a silhouette scene, I knew it would look great stamped in white, but I also wanted to give it a little bit of definition, so I colored in parts of the scene after the ink was dry with my Prismacolor Pencils, giving the sky some definition, grass, flowers and the rooster.  

The papers are Carta Bella It’s a Celebration.  I love the colours and the feeling of party.  I tried to mimic the pennants in the background paper by tucking some pennants behind the main image, and then adding some Candi.  

Here’s another angle to see the pencil work and the accents.  It’s such a pretty set as you can see below.  

Now you can pop on over to The TCP Blog to see who else is showing off their designs with this great set!  

Mark your calendar for the party coming up too!  Deets below!
