Postcard - Every Summer Has A Story

Created for the Sunday Postcard Art Challenge where the theme is Summer Solstice.  This was so much fun.  I focused mainly on the colours that say Summer to me, rich, bright yellows, red and oranges tinged with the purples and lilacs you see in late Summer sunsets & in flowers.  I don't think I have a an arty sun stamp (adding to wish list), so I used a clay mould instead.

Added this shot to show the Lilac Lustre Spray

Notice the text stamp peeking though the layers - This is my new favourite, looks just like old book page.
