Greetings to everyone who reads this. Apologies for not posting a card & for not visiting the blogs I follow in the last few days. I’ve been having a pretty stressful time & I wasn’t in the right frame of mind. Anyway, on to today’s card. I made it earlier in the week for the Magnolia v Stampavie challenge. You had to use the colours below, or as close as possible & I was definitely out of my comfort zone with them!
I wish the image was clearer, but after photographing it dozens of times I ended up scanning it. I am definitely going to do some research & buy a new camera. As usual, I spent ages playing around with papers & layouts before settling on this. I decided on this Tilda because the card is going to my mum, who is itching to start work on her garden after the winter. Tilda’s gardening clothes ended up a little scruffier than I intended, but they will make my mum laugh – both of us get VERY scruffy when we garden!! 🙂 I hope you can see that the edges of the paper are torn & edged with pigment inks. Unfortunately, the green circular Nestie shape is a little too green, but I didn’t have anything else suitable. I dusted the white embossed circle with chalk.
