Cool an' Green an' Shady (with thanks to John Denver)

Morning all!

So this is my 100th post!
I thought I would share a card made using one of my very favourite Clarity stamps - The Daydreamer - I just love this image, if you look at it, there is a person lying under the tree, surrounded by grass and birds - what a wonderful place to be!
Someone just commented on this card on facebook and I suddenly thought it looked cool and green and shady, which just happens to be one of my favourite John Denver songs - I just had to put the two together for my 100th post.
We made this card at the Easton workshop a few weeks ago, I will blog the others in due course...

I used two stencils for this one, the brick wall and the arch aperture.  I did the scene first, then masked it and did the brick wall afterwards.  The two work so well together, don't they?
I just used The Daydreamer and a one of my many grasses stamps.

Wishing you a cool and green and shady spot when you need one - I'm off to play the song now....

  1. Congrats on your 100th post Janet. It's a beautiful card, very tranquil and I now know that the song fits it perfectly (I just had to go on YouTube and listen to it as I've not heard it before). I look forward to your next 100 posts. x
