Hi everyone. You are probably wondering where I have been (or maybe not!). Well I was on vacation since May 16th, just returned back to work today. Bill and I took a trip up to Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. We did (well Bill did) lots of picture taking along the shores of Lake Superior.
We spent a lot of our time doing the hiking trails in Lake Superior Provincial Park. It is so beautiful up there. As you can image because of the harsh winter they still have ice/snow along the lake edges, some of them are huge like small glaciers! There is also snow along some of the trails that are in the hills and in the interior of the forest areas. Upon returning home on thursday night, I noticed that my gardens needed some attending to. Because of the warmer weather and rain we had while gone, everything is up and in bloom (and so were the weeds!). So needless to say I spent a few days tending to the gardens.
So tonight I decided that I needed to get some cards made. I decided play along with the challenge going over on
I used the gladioli digi image.
After printing off the image I coloured using copics.
I then cut out the image using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals - I actually cut out the image before cutting - I've learned from past experience that something can go wrong and you ruin your coloured image!
I layered my image on a piece of light lime green that was cut using the larger die from the same set. I used dimensionals behind the image to lift it a bit.
Here is a picture of the glitter, since it's hard to see in the above picture.
Stamp - Powerpoppy digi - gladioli
Paper - Memory box, lime green bazzill, white, SU Cameo Coral
Ink - copics - YG01, YG03, YG25, R30, R32, R35, Y38 (stamens), YG0000 (shading around the flowers)
Misc - silk ribbon, pearls, glitter, MME enamel dots
Thanks for your visit today. Have a wonderful week!
