Open-Minded Crafting Fun #17 - Last days of Summer

Hi everyone, this fortnight challenge over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun is called 'Last days of Summer'

I used a cute image by one of our sponsors The Paper Shelter called 'Happy Times', just perfect for this theme.

The image is coloured with Copics, I tried to get some kind of bark effect after watching a tutorial by Alyce of Kit & Clowder, which you can find Here, not entirely happy with it,if you see Alyces finished work, you will understand why, but hey Its a learning process.

I used my trusty silhouette cameo for the grass and tree tops and added a vinyl sentiment.

Please do come and join in the fun, we have some wonderful sponsors, with great prizes.
