For my project I used the set Don't Worry.  I love the chicory flower in this set.  Chicory grows beside the road here and I love to see it mixed in with the Queens Anne lace and all the other wild flowers.  Frequently I see cabbage moths lighting on the wild flowers so I just a had to use this set to recreate that scene to best of my ability.  Now I colored my scene with my Prismacolor pencils, blending with odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump.  I then added a layer of vellum over the top of my scene and stamped my verse, embossing it with clear embossing powder.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my project today. My blog is the end of the line so hop on over to the ODBD blog to leave your last comment.

Chicory, cabbage moth and the dusky accent of vellum dramatize summer activity into beauty. Thank you for blending all these aspects for such a touch of home heart of the card message.

This is such a wonderful and beautiful piece. It as if you are inside looking out a little round window. The harvest colors remind me of antique wall paper.
