Silkie for Ann's Squishie

I've sent the afternoon working on a silkie for Ann's squishie. Ann loves Victorian and she likes muted colors. I found this image on the blog that Lyn G found and love it! Here's the link to the blog >http://shabbychicpapirskatter.blogspot.com/ . Thank you Lyn, I love this blog! I thought I would mess around in photo shop elements 6 and see what I could do with this image because I didn't think Ann would like all the writing on it. If you do Ann let me know and I can clean it up and send it to you as is. Anyway I had a lot of fun messing around to see what I could do. I can't paint and have always wanted to so I think this is the next best thing, lol. I really wanted to put a tree in the image but I couldn't find one the same style, one that would blend in and look like it was painted by the same artist. Maybe Ann could embroider a tree on the right hand side over the leaves and bring it up over and to the center of the image? Just a thought. What do you think about this silkie?

I'm so glad you like it Ann, I love it two because it's so Victorian. I fixed the uneven gates, they are now even, lol. I'm going to print it out on the cotton sateen so you will be able to embroider all over it if you want!

what a great job you've done. I love the picture and I agree it looks better without the lettering. I really, really must get out my little old cards collection. There are some cute ones that would be great to use.
if I do so, you can find them on my blog.
