To achieve the soft focus, I've coloured the central part of the brown Kraft card with white chalk pastel, stamped over the top in black and then used chalk pastels to add more colour. You can just rub the pastels to achieve a halo effect round the flowers and trees.
I've pressed the brads onto one of the trees to get the pattern.
Talking of Crafty Individuals, I've got a class at the Craft Barn on Saturday 2 March using CI stamps and dies, Stampbord, canvases, glossy card etc.:
It's going to be fun and just in time for Mothers' Day, so if you fancy coming along just go here.
Thanks for looking!
