Fishing & Gardening

No, I have not been fishing or gardening, but the images on my cards have been! First up I have an image that I think is from Stampin' Bella. I colored her with colored pencils, but didn't blend with OMS because I wanted a different look. I love these colors and the simple layout.
Next up is another digi image from Dustin Pike. You can find his blog on the right sidebar of my blog. I colored this image, then couldn't decide how to make a card with it. I finally went to SplitCoastStampers to play along with the Clean & Simple Challenge this week (#72) and found this layout, which I thought was perfect. Because the image is so large, I started with a larger card base.

One of my favorite details in the layout was the piercing above the top layer that follows around the curve of the image. I used one of those spiky wheel things that comes in sewing kits to get the dots an even distance apart, then went back with a straight pin to make the holes. I got a little crooked in the curve, but I still like the final product.
