Crafty Sentiments Summer Of Fun Preview Day 1

Good morning everyone and welcome to the first day of Crafty Sentiments Summer Of Fun Previews. We will be having previews today through to Thursday with Thursday ending the previews with a blog hop, where you will have the chance to win 1 of the 4 new main image stamps from this release, there will be 4 winners in total picked at random from the comments left and of course after checking that you placed the banner on your blog. Banner available on the top right of my blog and it must be linked to the web shop The new stamps will be on sale from August 25th.

Today I am previewing Primrose 'Riding The Waves', isn't she a little cutie sat there in her rubber ring enjoying a cool drink which she has no intention of sharing with that gull lol. I am not sure it shows in the photo but I added glossy accents to the drink to give some definition. I also added the little bikini charm which I have had forever and often wondered when I would be able to use it, today just seemed to fit. I made the little ruffled flower from a piece of seam binding ribbon to match the flower on her hat as I didn't have a small flower that colour.

My friend turned up just as I was beginning to sort the images and claimed them all before I had even started lol, she immediately said they were perfect for my god daughter's friends who will be 6 next birthday. I told her I thought she was right and she said good can I have two of each!! Cheeky or what lol.
