By The River



This was one of the first LOTV stamps I bought, & much as I love the image, I find it a hard one to colour & shade. I've teamed it with a sheet of card from the Papeterie (our local papermill) and have gone for a distressed look on all edges.

Challenges;
LOTV - Here comes Summer
MAWTT - Their sketch - but flipped as it worked better that way with the image.
The Stamp Man - Blue + Torn/ripped + Diecut - blue squares - ripped/distressed edges - circle diecut.
Crafty Emma - Embelish it - 1 ribbon, 1 button & 3 pearls Jx

I think you have done a perfect job with this image and the choice of papers you have chosen. I like the sentiment with the ribbon attached. Its the attention to detail that makees this card perfect. I love it.
