The Card Concept - Hello Summer

     It's time for a new challenge over on The Card Concept blog. 

Today's challenge is: Hello Summer
Everyone is welcome to play along using the colors, the theme, 
textures, items, or just anything from the picture as your starting point. 
 I was inspired by the starfish and colors when I created my mixed media card. 
I'm honored to be guest designer for the Papertrey Ink May Release. Today's card features a new hot foil plate. Since I don't have a hot foiling machine, I decided to use the plate to create a letterpress effect. I inked it up with distress oxide and ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 to create the background on this card.

Beautiful, Esther! I love how you used the foiling plate with ink to create the background. Great idea and I will keep that in mind. Pretty flowers too! Thanks for sharing at the Double D, "Pick Three" Challenge.

Your postage stamps work so well as frames! Such a pretty and decorative background too. Thanks for participating in our challenge at Inkspirational.

The inked foil plate made a great impression (pun intended) on your background, Esther, and made a great place for your postage flowers. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Time Out.
