The Memory Nest June Challenge

Summer has finally arrived, but for how long i don't know. I'm playing along with the June Sketch challenge on The Memory Nest and have a few ideas for this sketch.
 Gizmo is such a lazy cat, he will sleep all day and then wake you up at the crack of dawn for food. I've experimented with misting sprays and used Rose red and Turquoise and blended them together to get lots of other colours. make sure you dab the excess ink off or your page will bubble up.

i used lots of bright summer colours on this layout. the flags i cut by hand out of scraps of matching papers and the tags are from a fancy edged frame nesting die i cut in half. I took some recycled card and covered it in two coats of gesso before inking some bubble wrap with distress inks and stamping different colours on to it.
products used;
Papermania Happy days
Capsule collection card stock
Pebbles ink chipboard tag
Recycled cardboard
Tim Holtz Peacock, Rusty Hinge and Tattered rose distress inks

i will be up loading my festive edition of this sketch on Whimsical Wednesday.
