Inspired by the last few days of warm sunshine and blue skies I made this card! (Although today it is grey and threatening rain - as can be evidenced from the picture quality!)
It just conjures up images of when life was so much slower and tranquil - a lady sat on a warm summers day painting a scene - perfect peace.
I stamped the image in Versafine Sepia and clear embossed then coloured it with Distress Inks.
I used a pastel chalk for the sky which is in fact a very pale blue in real life but doesn't show very well here.
The papers were from an old papermania pad I think, and distressed, layered and stitched onto co-ordinating card.
Used the same card for the die cut frame.
A scrap of old lace, some pearls to finish.
Have left the top right corner bank for a sentiment which I will add at a later time and used up the remains of the papers decorating the inside to match.
