A DAY FOR DAISIES :: A NEW CHALLENGE 'Add a Touch of Wood'



I used the same image to create a girl and boy version of this.

The images are coloured using alcohol markers, and a white gel pen.

My wood component is the string of wooden blocks (actually beads)

FREEBIE FRIDAY :: BUGABOO STAMPS

This week's freebie from Bugaboo Stamps is the cute lil cowgirl I used on my card.  You can find her in the Bugaboo store HERE

I merged the image with a digital frame and background before printing, and then coloured the image using alcohol markers:

I used knotted twine as the embellishment.

The sentiment ' Howdy!' is part of the set.
