Sunny, spring day

Hello folks,

Welcome along!  It is the most beautiful day here today, bright, warm and sunny - there really is no better place to be than my own garden when it is like this!

Having said that, this card is another German sample for Barbara and Clarity and the words mean 'Good Trip'

This is one of those cards that has ended up very different to way I thought it would!

I started by using an orangey watercolour background from my stash, then placed the wonderful circle stencil over it and drew round it all with a fine black pen.  I removed the stencil and filled in the little bits to complete the circles I decided were going to be on top.
I coloured and shaded the circles, but to be honest, I can't remember what with!  If you pushed me, I would say promarkers!

I then did the scene in the centre square: I drew in the lines for the hills, then shaded with promarkers I stamped the cyclist in place and added a few lines for ground underneath. I then filled in the background to the circles with dark grey promarkers and stamped the words.

I hope you are enjoying sunshine wherever you are - it always makes the world seem like a better place doesn't it?

Take care, Janet xx
