Art Creations Challenge Friday #8

The Art Creations Challenges always provide beautiful backgrounds and stretch my creativity. Challenge # 8 is to use this painted background:

There is so much wonderful color and depth in this background I wasn't sure if I could add to it.
Here is my end result. Unfortunately with the snow we are having.... I can't get an outside picture and I scanned it which means you can't see the glaze on here which pulls the colors and gives it another layer of texture.


  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Ranger Distress Embossing Powder - Vintage Photo
  • Prima Flowers
  • Gems, Twine, Butterfly Charms - Uknown
  • B Line Design Spring Blossoms
  • Penny Black Bare Tree

  • Asian Lady - Uknown
