Birthday card for a gardener! This card has been ordered for a horticulture teacher who often has yellow shirt when he works. I combined two HS images, cut off the girl! Background selfmade with several stamps.
 Tilauskortti puutarhuri-opettajalle, hänellä on kuulemma usein keltainen paita... Yhdistin kaksi HS leimaa, toisesta leikkasin tytön pois! Tausta koottu useista eri leimasimista.
 Stamps: Hänglar&Stränglar; Lost Coast Designs; Crafty Secrets; Indigo Blu and several little stamps.
Mediums: Background Distress Stains; Inks; clear embossing; Versafine brown,green, blue.
Images coloured with ProMarkers. 3D Crystal Glaze.
Inside papers: Memory Box (sweet bay); Tim Holtz clock.
Techniques: Masking, embossing
There's a forest in the background, a tree behind the boy; grass and plants in the front.

Thanks for your visits and comments, happy weekend;-))m
