Summertime Blues ...

Got the day off today (well 'til 7pm) because I am going to a Garden Party ....
No - not at the BIG HOUSE lol - but at an equally impressive establishment near where I live.
Not being one to waste time, I thought I would catch up with a little private monthly ATC swap I am involved in. Not a good idea really because to get covered with Colour Wash Spray and Alcohol Ink is not a good thing to be doing, a few hours before an outing - lol.
This month's theme is Summertime Blues and apart from THAT song, I could see the beach, which I just love ..... so ....

The first one from the left is an Alcohol Ink background, using Stream, Silver and blended with Solution (the photograph makes it look a bit 'muddy' - it is better in real life!). The middle one is another Alcohol Ink background, just using Stream this time. The background of the one on the right is using the Shades of Blue Marvy Blending Blox. The stamps are from Rubbadubbadoo - Beside the Sea and At the Beach.

This is where I really made a mess .... The first one to the left is on ordinary card sprayed with Adirondact Colour Wash Sprays - Bottle and Stream. The middle one and the one to the right are both done with the Shades of Blue Marvy Blending Blox on glossy card. The middle one is stamped in black StazOn and the one to the right with Azure StazOn. The image is Bathing Beauties from The Queen's Dresser Drawers.
Hope you like them .....
By the way, I managed to get my hands resasonably clean before I went to the party (and I did some housework) - lol
