And on that farm he had some horse's Ee i ee i oh. That's the challenge this week over on the CD Sunday blog. While I was looking through my CD's the other week I realised that there were some really nice farmyard pictures on them, and did think at the time it would make a good topic for the challenge blog. So thank you to whoever picked this weeks choice. I've used Joanna Sheen's Times Gone By CD this week, and this lovely picture of the horse's and foal. The colours that I picked to go with it were matched with the colours on the hay waggon, they weren't meant to look so patriotic. I made an 8X8 card base using some red card, and the matted the backing paper onto some royal blue before putting it onto the card base. I made a border with off cuts of the same colours and place onto the centre on the card, and added some corners cut out with a sizzlits Architectrual Accent die. I mounted the topper using the same red an blue, and mounted on an angle. Finally I added a sentiment for Father's Day, this was made on the PC.
Thinking about it, this is the first card I've made using the red, white and blue and although I am a monarchist, and love our royal family I've not felt like rushing out to buy any of the patriotic wares they have in the shops at present, or any of the CDs or kits with it on. Maybe it's because I shall be out of the country for a month from next Saturday, and wont be back until it's all over. Just in time for the Olympics.
Thank you for taking the time to look.
