Twin Willows

I had colored a couple of images of Willow with her umbrella, then found this beautiful paper in my stash. So with Martha Stewart's picket fence border punch and her branches punch I created a couple of very simple cards to cheer up any rainy day. I like texture on cards so the clusters of punched branches in coordinating colors brought the background forward! Fun!

However, I don't like my glitterwork, so these cards will just remain in my personal collection as lessons learned. I do like the coloring on Willow --- a bit different than I have been doing --- so, again, lessons learned.
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Barb these cards are adorable. She looks perfect on that gorgeous background and the MS fence an ferns just bring the card to life setting a lovely scene. I love them both!

Oh, these are awesome! Your coloring and cutting are fantastic, and I love that picket fence punch. Seems to me like I've passed on that one before - I might have to re-think that! :)

Barb - beautiful cards as always - your colouring is so realistic and the punched graphics add to it all as well. Well done, my friend!

I love the way you've used your punches to merge the paper with your image, so clever.
