Grounding the image.

Well here we are again..... post number 2 today!!  Guess I am trying to play catch up a bit and maybe even get a little ahead of myself.......  can't see that lasting to long though! 
I have really enjoyed creating and colouring this picture (card!).  I am addicted to Make it Craftys digital images and the new urban elements are now exception.  I held out for about a week before I had to get them..... just couldn't wait any longer so whilst OH wasn't looking they fell into my basket and then landed on my laptop.  I just couldn't stop them.  They wanted to be with me!!!  Anyway what else can I say, I wanted to try something a little different with them.  From all the examples I had seen they had been used to create 'urban' scenes..... which is obviously the idea but like I say I wanted something a bit different.  I chose to mix the street curb and the broken fence with the country walk background, leaving a gap in the fence to give the idea of a walkway.  I then chose to use the gorgous Lil lolita Chistina from Tickled Pink as my character of choice.  I think she is so pretty and quite dreamy.    The quote is one I made up myself and felt it fitted well with the card and the theme of keeping the image grounded.   Hopefully I have achieved this and I do like the way the street merges into the fields and countryside. 

Challenges I would like to enter this into are


  1. Trudie!! Absolutely fabulous and such a brilliant idea! Love the WHOLE scene. Thank goodness that urban collection went walkabouts and landed on your lappy! hehee Hugs hun xxoo

  2. Beautiful card! I love the whole scene. You've shown how flexible the urban digis can be and Christina is one of my favorite TPS images. Thank you for joining us a Little Miss Muffet and Make It Colourful challenges this week.
