The beauty of Nature

I saw this beautiful image on the CraftsUprint site and loved it so much that I decided to buy it.  I didn't really like the background that came with the image so I added some of my own papers.


I chose one of the papers from the new Stamperia Amazonia collection and after inking all of the edges I backed everything with dark brown card stock.  I used foam pads to adhere the image for dimension, there is also a decoupage layer, I also added a sentiment that came with the image, there are several to chose from.


Thank you for popping in today - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Stellar card, Pauline. The richness and depth of colours here instantly transports one to the sun-drenched plains of Africa.
