Country Road Challenge

The final challenge for Flourishes Release Week is to share a favorite country road as inspiration! Share a photo, pick colors in the photo and use them in your card or creation.  On the left is my photo of a country road from several falls ago when my DH and I were driving through a state park. I colored the background by sponging Memento Summer Sky, Ranger Distress Ink Peeled Green, and Memento Gray Flannel on to Glossy Ivory CS. I used the Mums stamp from Flourishes Set 3 of A Year in Flowers for my focus coloring the flowers in Copics pulling out the colors from my photo. Cut the image and a frame (colored with the Distress Ink)  using Spellbinder dies. Assembled all together plus a gray ribbon on a card base of Oyster Pearl Glossy CS.  Stamped sentiment from Flourishes "Zinnias" with Gray Flannel.  And there you have "My Country Road". Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. Maybe check out some of those country roads.
Thanks, Theresa
