Inspired by the heat....

Boy it's hot....and here am I painstakingly preparing a small order of summer cards for a paper shop in Nice. It's all in the pink really, with some models I already showed you (the sweets ones with flowery ribbons)
I took inspiration from these former models which I like very much but are much too time-consuming. I don't know if you can see it on the photos, but they're both collages and cutting out each little piece manually is quite tedious!
I made a lighter version in pink and more sober....La vie en rose....
Pink bikini and high-heeled shoe punctuated with a happy yellow flower
Are you in a pink bikini mood ?

Lala .. .
So dear , so very beautiful!!
I can see why the previous designs were much to time consuming. Lots and lots of tiny cuts.
I am feeling PINK these days... . salmon pink geraniums surround my little courtyard ( the exact same pink I used in my Royal Pink post).

Wishing I had a cute little body to wrap in in tiny pink bikini....
Sigh ... .
Jjjjj

They are adorable, Lala! I don't blame you for simplifying the collage. I don't think you lost much in the image; especially with the floral embellishment.

your cards are great. A nice way to try not to think about the heat, and yet be creative. xoxo

Very summery and pretty. I can see that it is a lot of work, and delicate work too. But the end result is lovely.
