Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge - April

Welcome back

It's April 1st and there's no fooling here. LOL   
Today it's time for the April monthly challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ

April Sponsor - Beccy's Place

Beccy has a super array of digital kits and you are sure to find something to suit your needs.

Let me share my card with you

As I looked at this old pump I thought it would look great next to a tree. 
I used an embossing folder to add the tree. I colored the tree sponging brown to the trunk and limbs areas and used my Distresed Crayon - twisted citron - to paint the green on the leaves.

Let me show a closer view of the pump.

I love this image. Also, see those leaves falling, well I got a blob of green in 2 different spots so I just added some leaf shapes and made it look like leaves falling, no mistakes, just opportunities. LOL
Also I added some stones to the bottom of the image just to fill up the space at the bottom. 

Craft-Dee BowZ has the best bow making tool

I made a layered bow and added some leaves to the knot area for added interest.
