Flower Power

Today my brain hurts from preparing budgets and my head is scrambled with too many numbers that generally are not adding up! I needed a bit of relaxation and headed for my craft space to make a card inspired by this photo from the challenge at Love To Create

I just love the bright and bold colours of the flowers and so used this as my starting point. I have this week been doing an CAS course from the training site Online Card Courses and the first session was based on 'masking' so I used what I had learnt in my class for this card-I masked the centre of the card with post-its then stamped my own pattern around the edge using 'the garden of life' set from PTI

This week I also watched Make it Monday's tutorial 'stamping on texture' and used this technique to stamp on my much loved PTI 'linen' impression plate. I am also going to enter this into the 'anything goes' challenge at A Passion for Papertrey

I now feel more relaxed but a woman's work is never done as it is now time to cook tea!

Have a good evening x
