Scrapology July Challenge - School's Out!

A new card challenge has gone live at the Scrapology blog:-

Claire set the theme for this challenge, which was "school's out!"   I really admire some of the very inventive and innovative ideas the team have come up with, but I couldn't think of anything - my inspiration had left the building.  So I went with the idea of celebrating the summer instead. 

The background paper was part of freebie magazine papers and I love the combination of orange and aqua which screams summer to me. 

I stamped the banner onto white card with the orange Stampin' Up ink.  I outlined the banners with the turquoise pen.  Because the white card was quite stark, I got a paintbrush and coloured in the white parts of the banner with the Cosmic Shimmer mist, using it like paint. 
I used the washi tape to "ground" the journalling block. A few small flowers and gems just added the finishing touches to quite a simple card.
