Beautiful flowers

Hello lovely Hobby Art fans,

I had my card ready and photographed yesterday afternoon to post last night and then my body didn’t play ball 🙁 So instead of writing up this little post I had an early(ish) night and strapped my hand in a splint in the hope I’d be better again today. I am still hurting but I am well enough to type this post – yay!

 

I have used the beautiful new set “Flowers for friends”, to try and tempt the spring weather out soon. The set is the March Monthly Special as well. So if you like it, this month is the perfect time to get it!

Febuary 2015

 

I have stamped the main image from the set in Memento black and coloured it using Copic pens. Inspiration for the colours came from the papers I picked out before starting. I then fussy cut it and mounted on foam pads for dimension.

To get the sentiment sitting neatly on the paper I stamped the frame from the set directly onto the backing paper and again onto white. Sentiment was stamped inside the frame on the white card only and then I cut out around the main part of the frame leaving the swirly bits on the outside off. When I then mounted it on top of the paper the image underneath just exposes those cut of bits and it looks whole again but with a white background on the sentiment. (Hope that explanation makes sense…)

Fairly simple as you know me, but I still love the sunny colours and how it showcases the gorgeous image.

Have a great day all,

Alexandra
