Over at the Play Date Cafe the challenge is based on a photograph and it's really interesting to see what this sparks in everyone's mind. For some people, it's clearly the colour palette, whereas for me, it was the fencing that stood out and all I could think of was country cottage.
So, that's what I did ... I covered some card with Panduro fabric and let it dry before running it through my lovely Vagabond (thankyou QVC for offering easy-pay!). I also used it to cut my fencing from Colour Core Cardstock (Whitewash Collection) which, if you are not familiar with this, is coloured cardstock with a linen finish and whitewashed. If you sand it, the core colour shows through. I love it as it comes in all different core colours and is really versatile, especially when embossed.
I then set about altering some existing embellishments I had to make my little house bloom. The background card was painted with watercolour from pale green to pale blue. A couple of stalks painted in for my sunflowers and it's finished.
