Welcome back friends. It's good to see ya. I have a card for y'all that showcases one of Shelly's Images. Check out Shelly's site here.
One of the challenges I am entering this card in gave us a theme of creating your own background. I used chalks to create the back ground behind the horse. I sure hope that counts as creating your own background. I printed out the image on GP card stock and colored it with colored pencils and OMS. I added some silver gel pen to the bridle findings. I had this cute little fence in one of my Recollections sets. I stamped it three times and cut them out after coloring them with BIC markers. I added them along the bottom of the card and pulled out some little Prima flowers to add along the fence. I should have added some vines, but oh well, my flowers are just floating in air. I stamped the little bluebird and cut him out and added him to the card with a pop dot. The butterfly and bee are from the same Recollections stamp set that the fence is from and I think it's called Garden Gnome.
I trimmed down the image to 4"x5.25" and put it on a Kraft (Recollections) card base. I inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo before adhering it. The sentiment is one I received in a RAK. Adding a few little gem centers to my flowers finished off the card.
Thanks for stoppin' by. I hope y'all enjoy Monday. God bless y'all.
