Summer Holiday

Here's my tag for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge  week 213 where the theme is to use the word Dream.

I started off with The Monkees's Day Dream Believer in my head but couldn't think what to do for that, so I moved on to what I'd dream about..... like a nice summer's day with the sun full out and going on a summer holiday..... ... which led to a red bus and another song altogether!!

The sun's rays are a Tim Holtz stamp clear embossed over Sunflower Yellow Brilliance, and for the rest of the background I used Salty Ocean Distress Ink for the sky and a mix of Mown Grass and Pine Needles for the land.

The bus is a Paperartsy stamp (Hot Pick 1208) inked with Vermillion Archival and blended with a bit of Vintage Photo.  It's just finished with a sentiment.  Our hosepipe ban was lifted this morning, so maybe we Dare Dream of Summer!!

Anyway thanks for looking and thanks for all your lovely comments!!
