Relaxing Autumn Harvest

Today I share with you my Relaxing Autumn Harvest.  What? An Autumn harvest, relaxing?  Just my combination of two challenges..... Glitter Geeks, and Designed2Delight.  I'll explain further on!  First up, the image is from Designed2Delight Digital Stamps, and is called Autumn Harvest.  I so love the D2D designs!

Ingredients: Cardstock - Portacraft; Promarkers; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Ribbons - Cherry...

I've coloured the wheelbarrow with a promarker and a waterpen - same colour, just watered down for lighter colours. I used glitter pens for the sunflowers, as I wanted them to stand out - and I have a thing for minimal coloured photos (usually B&W) with one focal object handcoloured.  So I thought I'd try it with a digi image, in sepia tones...

The image is single nounted on brown, and that is wrapped with a brown satin ribbon, and overlayed with a cream/gold organza ribbon, on which I've tied a faux bow.  I tied the knot to the back of the cream ribbon, and with the flat loop on the front, I threaded another scrap through.... so it has loos ends at the front and back.  Rhinestones to the corner finish my 'obligatory bling'!

Now... the challenge over at Glitter Geeks, Challenge 14 is themed "Relax".   I like to relax with crafts of course, but I also like to sit outside and breathe in that fresh country air.... so what better than to sit and view the garden!  And I love sunflowers.Thanks for peepin'!

I loved this image and so glad I got it but didn't have time to play with it! Great job with it.

I saw your hula hoop girl on DMW and thought "oh she is on the design team!" Good for you.
