here is mine

i have used a sponsors image ‘blossom cluster cherry branch’ by adayfordaisies.com, which i drew onto acetate, and coloured i with distress markers and posca pens. I have used a stamp set  by Heidi Grace called ‘Wild Daisy Road’.  The small flower cluster from this set was used to edge the acetate front. It was also used in the background along with the large daisy stamp, and the wording ‘memories’.

I chose the cherry blossom image as it reminds me of my dad who was a woodsman and adored cherry trees. I have put golden arched windows in the background as they remind me of his uncanny ability to always find an old ruin to poke his nose around, wherever he went – he was always very inquisitive.

the background is stamped and coloured with distress stains on water colour paper and mounted on gold card  (although that’s hard to see because of the shine on the acetate.)

i hope this  provides some inspiration for this challenge and look forward to seeing all your creations.
