Embark on a New Journey

Hello and happy Saturday!

I mentioned yesterday that my creativity is at full rev and this card is proof.  Just love how it turned out. ;) Although I will admit there were a few fits and starts in the process… in particular the Tree Line cut out was not playing nice at first.  It was just kind of blah and then I added the sponging and edge distressing and that did the trick.


The boy image and sentiment are from the OA – Journey set by The Greeting Farm. And speaking of journeys, this month’s Inspiration Emporium challenge is: Travel. Easy Peasy.

I colored the boy with Copic markers and then trimmed.


For embellishment I used some twine, twill, and a smattering of rhinestones.  Let me know what you think – I’m always interested in reading your comments. :)
