Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - Springtime
Sponsor & prize this week - Joanna Sheen
Well, I hope Spring has well & truly sprung wherever you are in the world and that the sun is shining - or at least trying! Don't you just love the fresh greens & pin-pricks of flowers dotted about of this time of year? Well, when I made this the weather was 'hopeful' & decidedly Spring-like, then of course we had the blazing sun of last week - & now I think I should have supplied this young girl with a snow-shovel!
Whatever weather you may be enjoying/enduring (please delete as appropriate! LOL), I hope too that you get the idea of Spring from my card today, using of course this fabby image from Mo Manning called 'Nelly'. Of course, the trouble with making cards that are not square is that they never show up nicely on Blogger - even when made 'large' I find that I can't really see them properly so you might, like me, have to click on the image to see it better.
I had the idea of a kind of secret garden, peeking through a white-washed fence so first of all cut myself my card shape, (having created a wood grain print for my cardstock), layering a few of the timbers & added a gate latch. Onto the front I then dotted a couple of my flowers, those escaping from one side of the fence to the other as they tend to do.
|Half open gate.... or is it half shut? Anyway she is peeking through.....
