Serendipity August Challenge!


Once again it is time for the monthly Serendipity DT Challenge, and this time it`s all about Monochromatic Cards! One of my favotite colors is brown, you may have noticed, so I chose to work with this absolutely gorgeous Mustang image!
Perfect, since I LOVE horses!
I colored the image with Distress inks, and used the Fleur de Lis Pendants from Spellbinders for the first background. The second background is CB embossed.

Be sure to check out the other DT members work also:

Herlig kort! Jeg elsker brunt jeg også (trodde aldri jeg skulle høre meg selv si det, da jeg bare for fire-fem år siden HATET brunt.. ja sånn kan det gå! hihi)Det er et fantastisk motiv du har funnet der, og med alle detaljene du har rundt så blir det bare så utrolig lekkert alt sammen!
