Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop


HELLO!  You should have arrived from the lovely KAROLYN LONCON blog but if you’ve stumbled in here and want to go back to the beginning then click HERE!.

I’m SUPER excited to be joining in with the hop today – this release is just amazing!!!  Wait until you see what’s coming – your mind will be BLOWN!!  I am struggling to come up with a favourite but have to say this pineapple set called Stay Fresh is high up on the list!  I went all water-coloury for my card using my Kuretake Gamsai watercolour paints – you can almost taste the tropics with these colours, they’re so JUICY!  The aloha die is sold separately and I just love it – I cut it from black and white cardstocks and overlaid the white with just a wee tiny peek of black showing to give a little depth.  You can’t see it too well but I smothered it in glossy accents after that.

stay fresh


The next stop on the hop is my lovely friend (and sometime mentor, lol) HEATHER CAMPBELL
