FLORAL, BIRTHDAY, WOOD + FANCY FOLD

A few weeks ago, Jennifer Mcguire did a video on how to make a bridge card - have been itching to have a go at it and along came Just Us Girls "fancy fold" challenge - perfect timing!!  Paper Players has a tic-tac-toe challenge going also so combined wood, floral and birthday along with my fancy fold.  Am also adding this to the Double D "tropical" challenge and the Altenew photo challenge for July.



To make my flowers I smooshed a variety of inks onto watercolour paper until I was happy with the results.  Then I used the dies from Altenew's Hibiscus Garden to die cut the layered flowers and leaves.  Made the base for my card with wood grained cardstock from Hero Arts (very nice and heavy and makes the card stand up perfectly).  Die cut an oval for my bridge, arranged the flowers, added the tiny sentiment and done.  I'm loving it!!




Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
