In The Garden

Hi everyone :)  I am such a bad blogger as it's been a little while again hasn't it!!

Today I have a Penny Black card to share with you as I am a guest designer this month for Penny Black and More!!
Very appropriately the Penny Black girl is actually called Garden Assistant so this seemed to be the perfect choice for Penny Black and More's August Challenge which is called 'In The Garden'!!

I created my own background setting for the girl by applying distress inks to a white panel, then stamped trees (Hobby Art/Open Tree) using a light inkpad and coloured them with Copics to give them a 'springtime' feel.

The die-cut trees (Memory Box/Grand Oak Tree) were coloured using the same Copic colours as for the background trees.
And of course Copics were used again to colour the girl, dog and flowers.

Don't forget to hop on over to Penny Black and More to see all the other wonderful creations that the DT have made and to find out how to enter the challenge.

I'll be back again soon!!!..................

Kay; What a beautiful card. Just love the layering of the coloured die cut and your shading on the dress. I love to visit your blog to get the inspiration to "get up and have a go". Thank you.

Hello Kay, Thank you for sharing. I love the shading on the dress and the coloured die cut. I really enjoy visiting your blog. It inspires me to "get up and have a go" when the creative mojo is in need of a boost. Thank you.
