Truly Scrumptious challenge 21 is a lovely sketch this week, but have to admit it really stretched my imagination.
I wanted to do a side opening A5 and had a job to arrange the elements to fit this size.
I hope what I have done is acceptable for the challenge.
I made the decision re the BP's fairly quickly....for a change....but then wasn't satisfied with the image. First I printed it on a parchment type paper...no, didn't like it...next on to photo paper....decided this was too small...so printed a larger one. The 2 reject images are under this final one but I'll keep that a secret.
I spent ages last night making two scrunched flowers then didn't like them...so settled for these lovely blossoms from Wild Orchid.
I changed my mind re the ribbon as well...burgundy was my first choice but the card looked too drab so went for the green.
When it was finished I had a 'funny turn' and decided to make a bag thingy to put it in...it is going to be given to the birthday lady at her party tomorrow, so no posting involved.
It would have fitted in an envelope, albeit a lumpy fit...but NO, I do things the hard way. This must have taken over an hour to make. It is made from 2 sheets of silver mirri card so is actually shiny and not matt gray
The image is another from Art Creations that was posted for a challenge some time ago. The flourish I made last week and is glamour dusted.
Thank you for visiting. I do hope you'll call in again.
