Spring is in the Air. Well I`m ever Hopeful............

I am entering this one into the http://http// challenge. This weeks theme is SPRING.

Not entirely sure about this one but had a real struggle with getting an image I liked and I`m not up to competer stuff to get an image straight onto my base card. The image I chose was from Joanna Sheens CD rom, Pamela west collection 2, which has digistamp images to colour in yourself. Because there are more than one image on the sheet i had to adapt to fit my card.Base card was crafter Companions Centura Pearl white, which I then embossed an oval from the romance board from the Glitter girls, I then embossed a second oval from the blue swiss dot embossed card to give some definition. This I stuck in place using pinflair glue.I coloured in my image using my Prisma pencils this time as I thought it warrented a softer look. This I then placed on top of the blue oval.To finish of I stamped a border round the card using a Fun Stamp, Flower boreder using Stamping Up Old Olive inkpad.My sentiment was computer generated, cut to size and inked edges with SU Baja Breeze.Haven`t been feeling a hundred percent this week and thought i wouldn`t get this done at all. but as they say any entry is better than none!! I hope I feel more like myself for next weeks challenge.Again thanks for stopping by and reading my blog and all your comments are read with great appreciation as always. xxxxx

  5. Hi Linda
    AS this looks like its fairly large it could actually work completely on it's own on the base card. However, another technique you could try is to cut a shape into the design, so that it appears its overlapping the cut shape.
    All you'd then need is a sentiment, or even on it's own as it speaks for itself
    Thanks for joining us
