As a child my brother and I were often taken during the summer to a nearby pond where we would float his toy boat. This image brings back those memories.
I used Promarkers to colour the Lili of the valley image 'By the river', edged it with distress ink stormy sky and mounted it onto blue mirri card cut out using a Spellbinders scalloped oval die.
Pale blue paper matted onto pale green centura pearl formed the background. Two strips of blue patterned and two strips of green patterned paper were also matted onto the pale green centura pearl and arranged on the background. The stamped image was then fixed on top of this.
A mini centura pearl envelope, inside which a card with a sentiment on it was placed, was attached to the bottom right hand corner. Two card candi finished the card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - boys will be boys
Wednesday Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - summertime blues (blue/green)
Here Come the Boys - sketch
Dream Valley - summer days
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
