I am lucky enough to have a sister-in-law who's forgotten more about flowers than I will ever know in my life. In fact, though I love flowers, I'm a confessed "garden assassin". I always start off with good intentions, but there are only a few things I'm able to keep alive - hostas, daylillies, and asiatic lillies! Maybe that's why I'm so obsessed with making flowers and using them on my cards and layouts. At least I know I can't kill paper.
I asked my sister-in-law for some pictures so I could make some notecards. She literally has "thousands" of photos, so I'll never have to look anywhere else or attempt to take pictures of flowers that I might pathetically attempt to grow.
I bought a piece of acetate awhile ago with no idea what I was going to do with it. Well, it worked perfectly for these pictures. While the photos may look blurry, it's the effect of the acetate and that I have matted them with Bazzill cardstock. I absolutely love the effect and will be using it alot in the future.
I do have two favorites out of the four cards - (the first two) the pink flower and the purple and white one. See...I don't even know what kind they are!
Thanks for stopping by!
