Flowers and Furry Friends

Well, after another hectic week we have made it to the weekend at last. Here in my part of the UK we have had some lovely weather this week…..seems like the beginning of summer - long may it continue. The sunny weather changes my crafting too and it makes me want to use brighter colours and the extra light makes it easier to do a bit more 'fiddly' stuff on my cards. So here is my latest card using a gorgeous Sherri Baldy image and lovely backing papers from NitWits.

This is an 8 x8 inch card which has been entirely put together with paper embellishments from the Nit Wits set. Oh - apart from the picket fence which is a LaLa land die. I originally cut it from white paper but thought it was a bit stark, so I dulled it down a bit with some pan pastels.
As you can see, my image has been coloured with alcohol pens (Spectrum Noir this time) and I decoupaged her and the fluffy little dog in three layers for a bit of depth. I also had a go at doing a bit of faded background behind her……a little more work required on that one I think!

Well I hope you like my scribblings this week……I certainly enjoyed creating it!

Here are some lovely challenges that I would like to enter:

Thanks for visiting me today. I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
