May Flowers

Hello and Welcome.  I hope you're enjoying your day.

I'm busy preparing for a demo at our little club tonight but just thought I'd do a quick post as I wanted to welcome my two new followers.

They are Lynn and Margaret.  They both make lovely cards so I hope you will be able pay them both a visit.

I made my card a while ago using Centura pearly cardstock  and goodness knows why I didn't lay my finished card on a coloured background before taking the photo.

The background is a piece of swooshed watercolour card that was lying around so I stamped and heat embossed the Hobby Arts flowers onto it and coloured the image with Promarkers.  It was layered onto a piece of black card and I punched the heart before adding the sentiment which is also a Hobby Arts stamp.

I would like to enter my card into the challenge at Shopping Our Stash - #251 "April Showers Bring May Flowers"

The inky background really sets off the pretty flower so well Barb and nice idea putting the sentiment at an angle.

This is striking. I love the colour combo. I always take the photo's in a hurry or at night time so the lighting is all wrong and don't notice till I get to upload to the post and then 9 tens out of ten I'm up against the back stop. hugs Mrs A.

That's a beautiful image and a lovely watercolour background. Photographing is so hard. In spite of reading up about it, I still can't get it right.
