Between Summer and Fall

First off, I am going to share my Card Positioning Systems card with you.
 Unity stamps is our sponsor and I picked this adorable little beach chair scene, something that is just right for summer. We have been warmer here this week so this is just perfect.
 I wanted to go with the idea of "less is more" so I didn't color in my image except for some specific little places.  After stamping the chair and umbrella, I masked them by stamping the image again on copy paper and cutting that out. By placing that cut out piece over the original stamped piece, I created a mask that protected the first stamping and then sprayed my paper with some Smooch spritz, so the background is colored with the spray. 
 Since back to school and fall are right around the corner, I also wanted to share this little card that I created with a My Favorite Things stamp. I just love these little Pure Innocense people. 
 The houndstooth piece behind the little girl is a sheer piece by KI Memories and it comes in a shape. I just cut off one corner of that shaped piece.  I thought it made a fun accent.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
