A Card for Through the Craft Door Facebook Page
This last weekend I was lucky enough to be allowed to download this gorgeous "Wild Roses" image from "Through the Craft Door" Facebook page, and I have to admit that roses are one of those flowers I love and so did my mum, whose favourite colour was a deep deep red one, and she would plant whole beds of them in her garden, and she also love the scent of them to, I can if I shut my eyes see her bending over the flowers and drinking in the smell of them. She also love to collect pictures of them to, and my dad would bring her home calendars that were full of the pictures and then frame them for her.
So you can imagine that this image bought lovely memories back for me, and I was also extremely lucky to receive from a very dear friend of mine in Guernsey a rose bush out of the blue and this one also is a deep red so Im so looking forward to seeing it come into bloom.
I think I had better get back to explaining what I have done, I printed the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used a square Nestabilitie die to cut it out and Art Nouveau one for the mount out of red card.
The actual card is a 7.50"x 7.50" white card with a first mount out of red card the papers are from SweetShoppe Designs and I have use three of the papers and layered them up as shown. I also used a ribbon which is just shown in the left hand corner above the pink paper and below the top multi green mount. I then placed my mounted image towards the top in the center with the sentiment down below towards the right hand corner. To finish of I have used some Nuvo Pearl drops in all four courners.
