Countrystyle chic(kens!)

This week at Willow Sketchie Challenge we have  a fabby sketch by Anne-Marie :

Plus the theme of Spots & Stripes.Don’t forget you can choose either the sketch or theme to follow.Or even both!You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational  bunch.

I’ve used a rather sweet image from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom from Willow Designs and watercoloured it using Whispers Brush Markers.Thes eimages are a joy to colour!The spotty paper is from the CD-rom as well.Keeping with the countrystyle feel I embossed the stripes and roughed all the edges up.To complete the look I added some wooden flower button with paper thread.

    I just left you a comment to say what a lovely card and thank you for joining us at Allsorts and it seems to be showing up as coming from someone else(the last blog I visited I think), perhaps you could delete that comment for me.

    Oh my gosh, you can join as many times as you like at Opus Gluei! So glad you did put in this card, it is so different from your other submittal but equally great! Such a contrast in styles, and both done beautifully. This is such a gentle card, the use of the brush markers is a great way to reinforce that soft, whispery sweet feeling from the motif and the embellishments you’ve chosen.

    Thank you so much for playing along with us at Opus Gluei, I’m afraid you are ssimply going to have to keep playing with us!
