Hi lovely bloggers - hope you are all enjoying the warm weather (wish I had a paddling pool).
So, what with all this hot and sticky weather, methinks that "The Great Outdoors" is a very suitable challenge subject this fortnight over at
If the last challenge is anything to go by, there will be a huge amount of fabulous entries - thanks to everyone for taking part.
So, if you're joining in for the first time, just click the link above and you will find all the Challenge details, and some inspiration from Chris and the DT.
For my DT card I have coloured Mo's fabulous "Secret Garden" image with copics and inked the edges with Peeled Paint and Broken China distress inks. The image was then cut out with the Nesties Labels 1. This is a very detailed image, so you may wish to click it to enlarge.
The BP is My Minds Eye, Bloom & Grow - this was machine-stitched onto the SU Kraft card (more wonky stitching I'm afraid!), and some natural twine added. I was going to add some lace, but somehow the twine seemed to fit in better with the garden/outdoors theme! Heart button from stash, and an old Hero Arts sentiment stamped with Coffee Archival ink. Ooops - nearly forgot - there just had to be a tiny bit of Glamour dust sprinkled on the flowers!
Have a great weekend everyone.
Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxx
