Wildflowers

I was playing around with some colors for a challenge and they didn't quite come together and I ended up with this card instead.  I was happy with the pretty background. The quote  from Hans Christian Anderson seemed very fitting for a card made up of wildflowers. Then I botched stamping the sentiment on the panel so instant fix... Re-stamp on vellum and overlay in the exact same position! :)

The background is glimmer mist and a lovely stencil from Layers of Colors. (A scrap from another abandoned project.) The verse is from Verses Rubber Stamps and the flowers are all Hero Arts.


Hope your day is fantastic!

  12. Clever crafting as always Sue and the result is a beautiful card. Love the blues and the mix of images is really pretty and delicate. I especially like the masking (one of my favourite techniques).

    Sorry if I'm not around over the next couple of weeks. The wedding is in 10 days time and then we are bringing our little granddaughter back to stay for a few days to give the newlyweds a bit of time on their own. I'll be back as soon as I can as I will be suffering withdrawal symptoms, lol!

    In the meantime, take care Sue.

    Hugs
