Loved this card! Those Scandinavian Flowers are now on my wish list. Thanks Michele, because that list was looking a little scant! 😉
So, here is my bluesy attempt:
And another view:
I loved Michele’s wavy grass, with the flower heads dancing in the imaginary ‘breeze’. Loved those blue hues too. I wanted to capture that feeling with my card.
So, there is a bit of a paper tole feel with my card. Before I knew what I was doing, I had fussy cut 7 flower heads, yes 7, to give my card a little more dimension. These were popped up using dimensionals. I had used a die to create the grass! I had a blue frame around my entire image. I had created layers!
Prior to that, however, I splashed a bit of blue water colour on the base card. I stamped my image on the base card, and then twice more on some scrap for use as my ‘pop up blooms’ All of these flowers were washed in pale blue tones, and three centres embellished with blackened rhinestones. I added Wink of Stella to the flowers also, although not really visible in these pictures.
Michele – thanks so much for the inspiration! It’s been a pleasure – as always.
