I was amazed to see it's a week since I posted anything - you may now be sorry as I try to catch up! lol.
I decided I needed to take part in some retail therapy this week - and bought myself a Grand Caliber. It's not been out of the box yet!!!!!!! I am though intending to play about today as we're having a weekend doing nothing!                                             So today's offering is a card made earlier this week using papers from the 'Lydia' collection by GCD studios.The pack has a mix of flocked, metallic and brights papers - the flocked ones are real 'touchy feely'!!Isn't this image by Mo Manning another good one? I really like the expression of happiness on the girl's face as she offers the flower to the bird. She's coloured with my usual promarkers and I distressed the edge of the image a little bit. (I'm considering buying a distressing tool from Sir Tim - need to speak to someone who has one to see if they're worth it!). I used these particular papers from the pad as the floral one reminded me of bright sunny day and I thought these flowers might attract the little humming birdie! I was a tad unsure about the colour combo but don't think it's turned out too bad.
A printed sentiment and a small humming bird charm with a bit of card candy finished the card.
