Creative moments - The weather

Hasn't it been utterly glorious! Beautiful blue skies and the warmth of the sun at last!
Well over at creative moments the theme is weather so what better excuse for a summer scene?

This was a free stamp with a set from creative stamping and just begged to be used in this simple technique.  The colours are much more vibrant in real life but I just could not get a decent picture!
Here I have used an aperture card as a mask for another card. Inked through the aperture with a light blue (pool party), a yellow (summer starfruit) and a deeper blue (pacific point) I used a sponge to get the colour on then stamped over the top in black.  The sentiment is stamped in pacific point and is from the freebie stamp set.
This is a Fathers day card - reminded me of holidays in Filey and as my Dad is no longer alive - wishing he were here is the right thing to add for him xx

My team mates as ever have been ultra creative so do stop by and say hello whilst getting some inspiration for the weather theme.
I am entering this into the Creative Inspirations challenge - Fathers day
and Simon says stamp - Fathers day. (only just made that one !)
Thanks as always for stopping by x
