Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday #90

This is Charlie. He is so excited that he is going to the Kentucky derby that he was telling all his mates; Chester, Carlene, Carmickle and Camilla, when I said "Hey Charlie" he turned to look and I snapped this photo ( Isn't he cute)! Come to the Kentucky Deby with me for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday


This is the first time I used the Van Gogh technique. What is the Van Gogh technique? Just coloring and then making dots or dashes in your coloring to look like a Van Gogh painting. For more info just visit this Technique Lover's Challenge post.
For the shape of my card, I just cut 1 1/4" off the bottom, then made the top look like a barn. Lastly, I adhered my image panel with dimensionals to the top part of the card and then sponged all the edges. The Gingham paper is adhered to the inside ( I adhered it as a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece then I cut the rest off to the shape of the card). I adhered a 3/4 x 5 1/2" strip of black cs to the inside of the front of the card and let it show 1/8" from the front of the card.
