Good morning crafters.
Hope you made the most of the fantastic weather over the weekend as, as the Easter break approaches the weather is set to get a tad wet especially around here.
When I took the dog out on Saturday it was great to just stand on the top of the hill behind the house and gaze out across the fields towards the Staffordshire moors, the Welsh foothills and the Wrekin, sun glancing off the hillsides, absolutely wonderful. I am so lucky to be living in this glorious English countryside. I actually spotted 3 female pheasants through the lounge window walking up the track on Saturday but the light was fading fast and my attempts at capturing them on camera failed dismally!
So how appropriate then that the theme for this week's challenge at Cardz4Guyz is -
IN THE COUNTRY
Here is my card using LOTV's 'In the Country' stamp.
Not quite Max and the hubster but not far off!
Over at LIM their theme is Use a Frame so I decided to incorporate a frame around my Copic coloured image rather than place the image on the surface of the card.
The top panel was made by cutting out a rectangle with a die to reveal the image below, before embossing it with a Tim Holtz EF. On the original stamp, the fence continues into a brick wall so I used this brick EF to frame the image. A happy birthday was stamped to finish off.
So that is it from me, for more inspiration check out the rest of the team here.
