Serendipity Challenge



It`s time for the very first Serendipity design team challenge, and the theme is "Garden". Sounds like something right down my alley, since I love everything garden or flowers:) I chose this beautiful garden wagon image, and it is colored with Distress inks. I kept the layout design quite simple, the frame is made using nestabilities and cuttlebug dies.
The "fence" is made using a Martha Stewart punch.

Also be sure to check out the other designteam members awesome projects! You find their links on my sidebar.

Thank you for visiting today!!

Sandy Knecht said...

Your coloring is so vibrant. How do you do it?

Abi said...

OMG. Your work is AMAZING. I usually browse blogs for Inspiration, and don't take this the wrong way. I woule NEVER be able to re-create anything you have done here. they must take you an ETERNITY to make them and colour them. I have never been so aw-struck by creations before. You are wasted as a nurse (sorry)and should be in the art world permanently. I am drooling. God Bless the lucky souls who are on the receiving end of one of your GLORIOUS creations. Thanks for sharing I am god-smacked..
