Wishes

Hope you all are enjoying the weekend and all that Summer has to offer! I wish that Summer was not offering up so much heat, but as long as my air conditioner continues to work, we are happy! It reached 109 degrees here today and it is humid as well!
I so meant to take a picture of my "Striped" background, before embossing and highlighting, but I forgot! The tag was masked off with easy release tape that had been cut do different widths and Distress Inked using Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Black Soot. At that point I decided it need some water flicking activity and I thought it was pretty cool. This striped creation is obviously being linked to Simon Says Stamp and Show "Stripes."
I used a CB folder and highlighted with Stampin Up Craft White (Pigment). The sentiment from Tim was stamped on newsprint, which had been wrinkled and distress with Vintage Photo, using Black Archival. I stamped a second heart which was covered with a few layers of UTEE and then cut out and attached. Torn around the edges and shaded.
Thank you for stopping by today and again I am so sorry for being behind on my blogging visits. So much going on and then there seems to be no time! I promise to catch up!

Love the way the embossed cogs play against that super stripy background and then you've added some fantastic embellishments too. Great job Terry. Hope the heat dies down soon. It's even making the news here in the UK. Hugs, Jenny x

What an incredible design Terry, the stripes have worked beautifully in the background and create a superb backdrop for all the other fabulous layers you have added.. I just live the overall effects and the colours you have chosen.
We have seen on the news that Colorado is experiencing extreme temperatures and wondered if it was affecting you too. Stay cool my friend and blow some of that heat our way please.
Hope you are having a great weekend.

How awful that heat must be, I am sure I would expire!
It isn't preventing you from continuing to creating amazing tags. So many wonderful elements to this.
Take care in the heat.
