Life as You Dream It

Good morning! This week's DT challenge at Serendipity Stamps was to create a card based on our 'fantasy' life - the life we would have if we could do whatever we wanted. This was not hard at all for me! If I had unlimited time and money, I would without a doubt travel the world!

The image I chose to use on my card is called Spring in Provence. I thought it would be fun to create it sort of like a post card - I would be traveling, after all!

I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it with Copics. In my head, I wanted the image to look like a faded photograph - how did I do? I did a bit of poking around before coloring my image.. Provence is in the South of France and is now definitely on my list of places I'd like to see - it looks breathtaking!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see their take on this challenge!

  1. Gorgeous Anya! You travel more than anyone I know so I'm sure you'll get to Provence. Be sure to send me a Post Card - I'm just as sure I'll still be stuck here in Missouri!

  2. I love the aged softness of your image. Great idea to stamp it in brown. Making it into a postcard was so creative!

  3. Fabulous! That stamp is just gorgeous.

  4. Lovely! You may want to read Peter Mayle's books, one is called A Year in Provence. :)

  5. Anya, this card is so soft and beautifully colored. I love the added touch of the doily.

  6. This is so beautiful, Anya!! I love the doily too!!
