I love you Mum

We have another 'Anything Goes' challenge this time at Try it on Tuesdays.
We did enjoy visiting you and seeing all your fantastic entries.
I hope you will pop over and see what we have all been making this time .

I decided to make an Easel card, something I don't do very often, but this stamped image from  a Joanna Sheene set is a favourite of mine and I wanted to use it in a different way.
Little did I realise how difficult  it would be to photograph.
Papers I think are Prima, I used Vintage Photo distress inks to shade and age them a little.
The layer behind the image is also brown.
The image is coloured using  various shades of brown watercolours.
Other additions came from my stash and flower box.

I would like also to enter this at-
Simon Says Stamp and Show  'A bit of Brown'.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
