Village by the pond

The challenge this week on A Spoon Full of Sugar is to follow a lovely sketch by Nikki. I've used my stamp design for Spiral Whisper named 'Village by the pond' and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and Sansodor, I've also used a sweet Hanglar design and she's very cute with her strawberry, I think I'm hankering after the summer that we haven't had yet! She's also coloured with prismacolor pencils and then cut out. I've matted the background image on navy bazzil card and then Doodlebug paper, both images are mounted on 2mm and 3mm dimension tape. The Sentiment is from Woodware and I added three flowers and stickles to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

What a beautiful, dream-like scene. I want to hop into the card and sit near the pond with that adorable little girl:o) She reminds me of my niece Savannah...except she would be holding an ice cream cone instead of the strawberry (LOL).
