On yer Bike!

Hello Bloggers!
Thank you for all the comments about the last card, I do enjoy reading them!
I had a trip to the Dentist today - just a check up and luckily no further treatment needed - phew!!  It is always a relief!
Simon and I have decided to have a go at cutting sugar out of our diet, so anything with added sugar is off the menu.  It means a lot of looking at labels when buying stuff - do you realise have many products have sugar added?  Quite interesting though, how brands differ!
Today's card is another of my DT samples, this one using the brick wall stencil, which makes a brilliant background and the rather nice bicycle set.

I brushed various shades of brown ink through the stencil on to some white card.
Stamped the bike, words and grasses in place
Added a bit of green at the bottom and did a bit of shading under the grasses and the bike
Stamped the flowers on a separate piece of card, coloured in and cut out and positioned on the basket
Tore down the sides of the card and mounted onto brown, then onto Kraft card and tore round that
Add it to the base card...
There you have it.

Hope you like it and thank you for visiting
