Artful INKables Blog Hop!

The Artful INKables DT is doing another blog hop today to show off all the new releases for this month :) If you want to find the beginning of the hop, go over to Kristin's blog and start from there for all the fun! If you're joining me from Dawn's blog, you're in the right place!

The set I used for this card is called "Boys Will Be Boys" - there are tons of fun boy images in the set! I did a little paper piecing with the leaves of the tree, and colored the rest using colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits (for blending). The patterned paper is from the "Prudence" collection by Crate Paper. I dressed up the edge of the green paper by using some assorted brads; I like how it turned out! stop on the hop is going to be Velta's blog. And don't stop there! I hear that there is some blog candy if you carry on all the way through to the end of the hop - enjoy!!

What a fantastic job with this image you have created Toni ~ It looks like pebbles at the bottom of the tree and the brads make it look like stepping stones :)
