TUESDAY Jauary 11, 2011- In the Forest


My image was colored with Prisma pencils, I then followed a faux tile tutorial by Michele to create the window. The Frame is made using neastabilities and made the curtains out of some ribbon. The card stock is by MFP and DP is Basic Grey.

You can see more fabulous samples by the rest of the team.
