I have finally managed to get back to post a card - it's been a busy time with the gardens needing attention and visitors calling in - which I have loved.
This card was made for a dear friend, who has the most magnificent garden, so it was only 'right' that I make her a floral card!
The sentiment was stamped onto a the back of a snippet of the bubble background - it still merged a wee bit too much for my liking, so I gave it a pink ribbon to nestle on after inking the edges of the banner with the same blue ink I had stamped it in.
The florals were on a card in a package from Altenew that was able to buy, as I won a voucher from them recently - I coloured them using some Altenew watercolor markers that were in the package.
The colours are very bright, and I wanted a more muted colour, so toned them down using a water pen.
Trimmed them out, and added a very pale blue background to them before adding them to the card base.
The colours were inspired by some peony flowers that my friend grows.
I mounted the feature panel on blue metallic paper, then the yellow card base.
The final touch was the add some wee butterflies cut from the same blue paper.
I added a verse from a hymn to the inside, and have just managed to (unintentionally) delete the photo!😕
