All That Blooms
Welcome to my wee blog, glad you could join me today. Hope you are all well? I'm sitting here feeling all un-inspired today, something to do with the very grey skies and wet stuff falling - ugh! And I have to go food shopping - double ugh!
Something a little cheerier then, my card for today, which is my DT piece for Tuesday Taggers. This week we are all about Blooms, what with summer just around the corner (where?? I don't see it today, LOL). All the flowers are bursting out, so there is a load of inspiration out there.
I have used one of my digi-images for this card (surprise!) the Poppy which you can get from my shop, Delicious Doodles. I have a good few floral images there in case you needed any for this challenge!! (plug!) I coloured my image with watercolour pencils and scanned it in the compy. That way I have the coloured image already to print out for my various layers.
I have used a yummy sketch from Totally Gorgeous for my layout:
I almost forgot to put a sentiment in, but as the card was finished I didn't have a lot of space left, so I got my pen out and wrote it in myself! Wish I had fancy writing, mine is so boring! LOL
My papers are from a Joanna Sheen cd, RHS Botanicals. The ribbon and flower shaped brads are from the stash. The flower in the top corner was made with spare bits of that paper and bits from my 'bits box' using floral punches. I have inked the edges of the petals, and the card/papers too, for extra definition.
This card fits a few other challenge too, so I am entering this into:
Charisma Cardz - 'Flowers', Crafty Catz - 'Red and Black', A Spoon Full of Sugar - 'Floral Delights', Bee Crafty - 'Blooming Marvelous'.
OK, so off you go to the Tuesday Taggers Challenge Blog for some more floral fancies from my DT sisters - hope to see you there. . .
