An Old Windmill in Amsterdam


I had made this card for the Charisma Cardz challenge this week of a project inspired by a song - so I thought of this image and "an old windmill in Amsterdam" as the song - but guess what - I missed the deadline!!!  The card is made with lots of pieces of downloaded paper scraps I had in my bottom drawer, some of which I have torn and the others punched with my Martha Stewart lattice punch.  The flowers are made from an X-cut flower punch and a stamen punch with the centres put on 3D foam to add some dimension.  The image is so peaceful and is from the Digi Doodle Shop and I have coloured it in with Promarkers but coloured the sky and around the grass and also around the sentiment with my glitter chalks.  It adds a very subtle glimmer to the picture.

This card fits the following challenges:

Digi Doodle - Write me a message
Crafty Calendar - Blue and flowers
Paper Sundaes - Mixed mediums (Promarkers and glitter chalks for me)
Cowgirl Sunday - Anything goes
Totally Stampalicious - Paper flowers
Kaboodle Doodles - Photo inspiration
Everybody Art - Handmade flowers
Gingersnap Creations - Punches.
