Colours of Summer at Try it on Tuesdays

Time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesday - yest those weeks do fly by - can't believe it's over a week since I was last here!  but I'm back with this new challenge which is 'Colours of Summer'.
I made a a little hanging and took my inspiration from the fact that I bought this Imagination stencil a couple of months ago and it needed to be used.  I used a piece of Printer Canvas, and applied  embossing paste through the stencil, and although at this stage it wasn't coloured, thought it might look a bit flat, so decided to stamp an Inkylicious spot stamp with Versamark and clear embossed, to act as a 'resist'  I used PaperArtsy Mermaid and Guacamole Fresco paints for the background.  My flowers were stippled with Distress inks through the stencil, and gilding wax for the butterfly and dragonfly.  The sentiment is IndigoBlu, and isn't as feint as it looks in the photo.
The rest of the DT have some very different interpretations of this theme, so why not pop over to the main blog to take a look.
Sorry to have been such a bad blogger lately,  I just seem to be catching up and then it 'all goes to pot' again!
Anyhow, before I go, I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers, lovely to see you.

I am entering this at:

Thanks for visiting,
