International Art and Soul Challenge 12

Our theme this fortnight at International Art and Soul is Elements of Nature. You're free to interpret that as you wish! My ideas were around horses, trees and leaves!


This is a card for one of my two (twin) brothers-in-law, and I've kept it fairly simple as a result. I've used an image and paper from Joanna Sheen's Pamela West CDRom. I've found this CD to be a really useful one for the folks who I find difficult! It's got a lot of landscapes and garden images (as well as some gorgeous floral images). I added the cream background and sentiment in Photoshop Elements before printing, added some matting and a couple of leafy borders cut using a magenta-coloured die which I think might be Crafts Too but I may be very wrong on that. It's a gorgeous die, and despite being fairly detailed, always cuts well - definitely a favourite of mine.

I hope you can join us this time.

A beautiful scene and yes, that CD is great. I have it too, though I haven't used it in quite a while. Hazel x

Just gorgeous Josephine, a very clever example of how to use CD images and layer up your creation to produce a gorgeous piece of eye candy :) :) :) Hugs xxxxxxx
