Allsorts #681 'Summer Flowers'

     Good Morning, I am the host of this week's challenge at ALLSORTS and have chosen the theme

                                                                Summer Flowers

        The prizes for this challenge are a floral stamp and 3 images from Ruth Hamilton Design

My design team inspiration uses Nasturtiums by Ruth Hamilton. She has so many beautiful floral images available. I printed it twice and colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I cut out the smaller flower and tucked it in to make a trio of blooms which was popped up on a black panel embossed with a Swiss dot folder (impossible to see in my photos). The sentiment is from an Altenew Paint-a-Flower set., and some water drop embellishments to finish.

Summer is very slow to arrive this year and so I referred to an online picture to inspire my colors. A seed catalogue is often a great source! 
I look forward to seeing your summer blooms posted on the Allsorts blog! Check out the rest of the design team inspiration.
