DYSU Challenge #72

Morning All,
Time for a new challenge over at Do You Stack Up? but firstly I want to say WOW,  what gorgeous creations you all entered last week for our Add A Flower challenge - so hard to pick my favourite 3!! Congratulations to all the winners.

This week we want you to create a Landscape.

and our lovely sponsors are .................

Pink Cat StudioWinner’s Choice of 5 Digis

The Ribbon Reel £10 Gift Voucher

This week I got to play with some images from the Pink Cat Studio - and play is exactly what I did!! I have used "Betty Bumble Bee Fairy and Flower", the "Sun" and two of the "Happy Flowers". All have been attached to the card with foam pads for dimension and the grass has been created by fraying some green ribbon.

I must admit when this was finished, I was not that happy with it. You know what it's like when you visualise something in your head - it never quite turns out how you saw it. Well this was one of those cards but the more I look at it, the more it grows on me - LOL!!

Medium - Promarkers
Paper and ribbon - stash. No name for the paper I'm afraid.

Do take a look at the DYSU Challenge blog - the rest of the DT have created some fantastic landscapes that will hopefully inspire you to join in.

Thanks for looking.
