Yellow and Gray and a Flower

Welcome.

I made this with at least two challenges in mind, and I enjoyed the process.
I came across a couple of images I had coloured using the chalkboard technique when I was doing a tidy up recently, so one of them formed the starting point, and focal image, for this card.


I cut the image using a plain oval die, and then faux stitched in silver around it before removing the die.


I used some pale lemon coloured card for the scalloped layer, which really complemented the colours in the image.



I experimented with black Staz on ink and stamped the greeting on the ribbon, and it worked first time!!



The lower layer of paper was embossed, and the lace layered under the image.  A few black pearls finished the card.


Thank you for visiting - Any comment you may leave are deeply appreciated.
May your day be blessed
