Fall Wheelbarrow


I'm such a HUGE fan of coloring images and this Fall Wheelbarrow digital image from Karen's Doodles was lots of fun to color!  My husband is into woodworking and loves that I colored the edge of the wheelbarrel dark brown compared to the face of the wood.


My card base is PTI Dark Brown layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then Autumn Blaze patterned paper.  The shadow layer is Old Olive embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. 

The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on to a larger piece of PTI Dark Brown.  To embellish the card I added a bow finished with a button threaded with DMC White and some rhinestones in the corners.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

I agree with the hubby, coloring the edge a different shade of brown really adds depth to the image. I just love your choice of images, the piercing and your perfect finish with the bow & button. TFS! Robin
