On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Canada


Thought I should start this week by clearing up last weeks puzzle. I spent years trying to do it before I got to sixth form and learned what Euler had proved. I won't make you wait  but will tell you he proved that it was impossible! The good burgers on their Sunday stroll had to cross one bridge twice.
Onto this weeks country, Canada. I lived there for about four years, in Toronto, and loved it. We still have close family there so visit every year.
My scene is cottage country. I stamped it using 9 different stamps from "Country set" by Stampscapes and "Nature set 1" from A Stamp in the Hand Co. I stamped using Versifine Vintage Sepia and distressed with Vintage Photo.
My page is depicting what I think is one of the highlights of the year in Canada the Fall colours. I stamped and distressed using a number of DInks. The leaf on the pocket is metal and coloured with alcohol inks.
Thank you all so much for your kind remarks you have made. I am so enjoying this challenge and seeing all of your fabulous work.
