Tag Tuesday - Summer

This week's Tag Tuesday challenge has a theme of "summer" and is open for two weeks.

I have used Paperartsy stamps with some Wendy sentiments and a Hero dragonfly.

The tag is coloured with rusty hinge with a little vintage photo round the edges, and I've stamped the Paperartsy flower with rusty hinge, the criss cross is wild honey.
The little paper flower at the top is from petaloo, coloured with wild honey and covered with some glitter.

I had my delivery of eco green paints yesterday - just look at all their lovely ice-cream colour loveliness.   I thought I was very restrained to limit myself to these (9) to start with....!
I can't wait to use them - but in reality it will be Sunday as I'm out all day on Saturday at the Newbury "Artstamps" show (can't wait, so excited, got a huge list, that is growing by the day, that's before I get there... lol)

What???? Another stamp show???? Crikey. Your tag is really lovey dovey doo... I really love the Rusty Hinge color. You're really going to make me order some Paper Artsy, aren't you? lol. And the new paints look scrummy. I see lots of blues and greens, (I think)...can't wait to see what you do with those! Hmm, my security word is flaters, here in the US, we call potatoes - taters, so are flaters flat potatoes? rofl
