"jagged softness" card...

Hello bloggerettes, hope you are all well. My niece e-mailed me this morning asking if I could make a card for her TODAY for a very special couple who are having their birthdays. I was planning on resting this
week-end, but I could not say no to my darling niece. So I whipped up this card, based on the inspirational photo at For Your Inspiration, and took quick pics before giving it to her.

Here in the photo inspiration :

I had seen this flower tutorial in Cloth, Paper, Scissors and decided to try it out for this challenge. I felt the petals were a good interpretation of the jagged rocks in the photo and my background paper reminds me of water. And the contrast of textures of rough, jagged and soft, flowing....

Some twisting rope, movement like the waterfall....

The inside; some Prima chipboards, and a bit of blue lace....

And the back, inks, paints, stamped with bubble wrap, and added inka-gold....

I am really happy with it, and I think they will like it; they are both artists and avid gardeners...Hugz...

  9. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue together with your web site
    in internet explorer, would test this? IE still is the marketplace chief and a good element of other
    people will pass over your fantastic writing due to this problem.

  10. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
