Pastel Pink and Green
Sadly, neither of these photographs give a good account of the card and you can hardly tell what colours I've used. It's been posted to the recipient so I can't try again. Think I need to look again at the settings on the camera. Any suggestions Anyone?
The inspiration for this card came from these very cute bear pictures that I found whilst we were sorting through my MIL's house. They tell a story of the little bear buying flowers, crossing a field and knocking on the recipients door. I thought they were perfect for birthdays. I scanned and reduced them and layered with a springlike green card, again it's the back of Co-ordinations whitewash. Why can I never find the colour I need anywhere else in my stash? The pink and green stripey paper is from SU Sweet Pea range and brighter than it looks here. The pictures were going to look a little flat just matted so I layered the first and last with foam pads to add a bit of dimension. The Craftwork sentiment was double layered too and attached with foam pads. The tiny pink flowers I punched with my Tesco punch added a Papermania shimmer dot and stuck them on with glue dots.
Thank you for looking.....I'd like to enter some challenge
