Well it's another chilly day here in the East midlands, but at least the sun has been shining again and the snow has started melting.
For my card today I started off with all the papers, embellies and such like as well as the sketch that I intended to use set out on the table in front of me... and then I made something completely different. It was one of those inspiration moments where I just couldn't bear to take anything away from this oh so sweet image, so it's ended up with no papers and minimal embellies.
The image is Nellie Snellen 'Sharing a Biscuit' which I coloured with Promarkers and chalks (for the sky). I matted this onto silver mirri card and then onto a hammered card base. A while ago I had one of those 'doing' moments when I got a load of paper bits and cut a lot of flowers using various different dies and just put them in a box, so I'm not sure which of my dies I used for these flowers. I added a couple of pearls and a bow from my stash and then emptied the bottle of Stickles for sparkle.
The photo isn't so great as the sun insisted on poking his head through the window.
