Just for You

For my card I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Theresa Sherman called "Maid of the Riverbank".  The image has been coloured with Promarkers, highlighted with Sakura Stardust clear pen, torn with a tearing ruler and the edges inked with a chalk ink pad.  The backing papers are by Tim Holtz and layered with kraft card.  I love using kraft card for the natural look and with this card I wanted to keep it to all shades of browns.  The card has been finished off with lots of leaves cut with various X-cut punches out of scrap card, Tim Holtz clock die cut from kraft card, sentiment, die-cut butterflies, ribbon bow and card candi.
