QKR Stampede DT

Hello Everyone..


Today I want to share a card I've made for 

I started by colouring the image, with no idea of what the final card would look like.
That is very unlike me. I normally always start with the papers I want to use, and then colour from there. I dont know why I started "backwards" this time, but once coloured I sat there thinking what to do next. So the hunt for matching papers started.. No good. I decided to mount the image, but that was as far as I got. In the end, I simply lay the mounted image onto the white card blank.
And there it was.. The idea came. The mounted image looked like a picture, so I decided to make a simple and pale frame around the image.




The frame is simply just a few lines made with my promarkers. 
I think it looks fab, and really sets off the image in its own right.
I added the greeting inside, so as not to "spoil" the picture look.




Hope you all like my card, and THANK YOU for stopping by.
Big Hugs, Marleen xxx
