Today's Twisted Sister challenge was to create a card with the Faux Wood technique, use reds and browns and one other color. I chose my "other" color as blue. Hope this counts. My faux wood is Hedgies fence. Thanks Joanne (sleepyinseattle) for the tutorial using the MS punch for the fence. It can be viewed here: http://sleepyinseattlestamps.blogspo...-tutorial.html
Thanks to my friend Debbie (dstfrommi) for this adorable image.. I love them.
Have a great weekend everyone...

Dawn you are such an artist! Brilliant use of the MS punch! Superb coloring (as usual) and precious little image! Your use of blue in this project is outstanding. I do not know how you do it, but I look forward each week to your creations, they are so beautiful. Yep, as Marlygo stated before, whoosh, into MY favs too!

Dawn, love this sweet lil' scene with your hedgie sitting by the fence with the potted flowers. I have never scene a fence done with the MS punch.
Super job on using faux wood. Your clouds are fantastic.
