In the Garden

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Photo Inspiration’

and here is the photo to inspire your creation.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

The inspiration I’ve taken from the photo is the garden and I’ve created this card using the Freshly Harvested image.


I printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers in the following colours:

Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair, Basket & Ground - E57, E55, E53, E51; Clothes - B95, B93, B91, RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91; Plants - YG67, YG63, YG61.

I have kept my embellishments to a minimum so let the pretty paper show through.

Here’s another photo…
