WOW - what a gorgeous day it is today. Blazing sunshine, hardly a cloud to be seen! Am I dreaming? Someone pinch me. . .
Today is the very last day at Primary School for my eldest D, boo hoo! No more fluffy teachers. Off to the BIG school after the holidays for her - ooooh, scary! I remember my first day at High School, although it was known as Secondary School then. I had a terrible time, I was a newbie to the area, didn't know a soul. . . still brings a tear to the eye (sniff)
Anyway, enough of the snivelling!! My card today was made to showcase my newest image, Mr + Mrs Owl, available for purchase now in my Delicious Doodles Shop:
I coloured them in with my watercolour pencils and scanned them to the compy so I could print out some layers. I have used this weeks sketch from Midnight Madness for my layout:
And the papers are from Funky Hand, 'Paper Blossom' is the name of the set which is a download. I used some flowery felt trim which I found in my local craft shop, and some organza from the stash for my bow. Pearls are also from the local craft shop. The flower is made using my trusty punches, spare paper from the download kit, and inky edges with another pearl for the centre.
There is some faux stitching round the green panel at the back, which hopefully qualifies for the challenge at Papertake this week of 'Stitching'. Only just about visible though. I used my pencils for that bit too.
Not entirely convinced with this card. I think it's the colours of the papers, they don't gel quite right in my mind, although it is growing on me a bit. . . What do you think? - honest opinions now - flattery will get you everywhere!! LOL
