Life in Your Years

How much do you love this bicycle image from Our Daily Bread Designs - totally adorable and has such a nostalgic feel don't you think!?
I have coloured the image using SU Chalks/Pastels and sponged the grass and sky, to try and create the feel of a summers day. 
The image has been cut and embossed using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Nestabilities®.  I have used the Die as a stencil and sponged the background before removing the image from the Die.
The image has been stamped in Tsukineko StazOn, cut and embossed using the Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags Shapeabilities®.  I background has been sponged using the Die as a Stencil.  All Dies have been cut out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

Finishing off with Want2Scrap bling.
