Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 118

This time the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More is set by Suze, and she has chosen the theme, Wooden it be Lovely! So, something wood related is required. That should be more than just paper, but it can be an image of a tree, wood-effect paper or wooden embellishments - or anything else wood-related that you can think of.

Our sponsor is

And you can win three images of your choice!

I worked with one of the sponsor's images called Little Friends.

I tried a slightly new (to me) technique for colouring the image. First, I flat-coloured with Promarkers. I used pale shades for everything and didn't add any shading at all. Then, with my Spectrum Noir pencils, I added areas of shadow and blended using Zest It. Finally, I added a little extra texture in her hair and the grass without blending. For the sky, I shaded with Pan Pastels in cyan and white. The paper is from Papermania. To fulfill the 'wooden' requirement, I used some wooden embellishments. All were plain when I started, so I drew some marking on the butterfly, and then coloured it and the flowers with Promarkers. Then I added some liquid pearls and glitter glue. The image and mat were cut using Spellbinders dies in my Big Shot Pro.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Hambo Hoedown where the theme is 'Here Comes Summer',
