Hobbycutz, Challenge 13 (lucky for some!)

Good morning! Two weeks have flown by once again and it's time for a new challenge at Hobbycutz, this time we would like you to create your own background for your project.
For my DT project I decided to make a stepper card. The lovely fairytale image is courtesy of our generous sponsor, Crafts and Me, it was an absolute joy to colour. To make the  background I used some Gayle Bond images of toadstool houses which perfectly complemented the little girl and her lovely fairy friend. The toadstool border in the foreground comes from the same CD (to visit Gayle's blog click here). The swirly 'tree' in the background is a Hobbycutz wooden laser cut.

 Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Why not pop over to Hobbycutz Challenges now and take a look at the fabulous creations my team mates have produced! You won't be disappointed! We would love to have you join us so that we can admire your creativity too!

Gail said...

Holy moly, this is truly art. This has got to be one of the most fantastic cards I've seen...with the levels the way they are, there's depth and the colors are fabulous. This is so very cool...wish I lived near you so I could see it up close and are NEVER near as nice as the real thing, don't you agree? So we learn to see past the flat picture but I have a feeling this card is really a magnificent piece of art. Gorgeous, Chris, just gorgeous. Hugs, Gail
