In the Summertime

Here's my entry for an ATC swap "In the Summertime". My inspiration came from my recently bought stamp set of old-fashioned chairs and lamps. I imagined a nostalgic summer house by the sea, with lots of light and fresh flowers in every room, and pretty coloured shoes and dresses waiting for their owners to come back from swimming.

I first toned the backgrounds lightly with watercolour on a good thick watercolour paper, then stamped the furniture and lamps with a chalk ink. The focal images are made using magazine cuts, acrylics, watercolour pencils and black pen. The swap is due in mid-September so I might then make another post on what I receive in return!
