I received the most wonderful package of crafty goodness from Jacqueline with the most beautiful card which I will share here with you in a moment. I had contacted Jacqueline via Flickr because she makes these amazing collage cards and grid cards, they take my breath away everytime and I wanted to try my hand at a "collage" type card but I just could not figure out what to do! So, Jacqueline offered to send me one of her beautiful cards so that I could have a close up personal look. Well, it's beautiful, here it is:
Isn't this beautiful! That awesomeTea Dyed background, the vellum embossed butterfly, those Hydrangeas from Hero Arts which have been dabbed with a bit of water colour! And that tiny little tag! I love this card, the aged look it has, and it's mine! I get to keep it and admire it whenever I want! Thank you Jacqueline! And thank you too for all these amazing bits and pieces...
And, it wasn't long before I used up a few of your scraps and made this card for my Mother which I know she will love because the Hydrangea is going to remind her of her life in France, when we were small, our tiny back garden had a lot of these flowers! (It's not a collage, not yet, I still have to practice some more!)
Paper: Scraps from Jacqueline
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Lace from my stash
Obviously I cannot comment much as the centre panel and the beautiful patterned papers all came from Jacqueline! I did not have to do too much here, the beautiful stamped panel has centre stage!
Friends are just wonderful gifts!
