Over at Lily Pad Cards this week, Lucy's lovely lines sketch is this:
As soon as I saw it I had a card in mind.... but what I produced was NOTHING like that!!!!!!!!! Here's my interpretation
Not sure what happened. The Simple Frame and the vines were there but not the colour scheme or the sentiment... I started with some watercoloured paper I'd made that was greeny. Stamped the frame with Shabby Shutters, masked and added the vine in Crushed Olive and Pumice Stone. Thought it needed some texture so used the French script in the Shabby Shutters. Cut it out and distressed round the edges. stamped the ticket onto a scrap of the watercolour paper and matted it with some darker green and then using some twine added it to the panel. I took the lighter green card stock and stamped the Script in Peeled Paint and then mounted the panel with dimensional dots. Added a few gems and it all just came together. As I did use a pit of watercolour painting~ used the Shabby Shutters to fill the bits of the leaves that I missed stamping, I am also entering this into the Hero Arts monthly challenge. and Wee Memories two week challenge
Now just a quick peek at what was bursting out this morning....
Here it is middle of the year and winter time and this little beauty was bursting out. The chrysalis was on my outside washing airer and had been there for an age... so long, I thought it had died.... but no just waiting for some sun to shine on it. After a dreadful day yesterday some early morning sun arrived... ( on and off all day now)
Thanks for looking... have a great weekend
