Today's challenge at Patties Creations challenge is Flowers and Pearls... of course I'm in my element because those are my 2 favourite things to create with (along with a hand coloured image of course).
I chose Mother and Child 1 available in Patties Shop HERE
I printed the image smaller than I usually did, because I thought it would stand out better - and I think I'm right...
I coloured, as usual, with watercolour pencils blended with spirits.
I chose to use blues and naturals on my card, and I'm really happy with the result. Kind of vintage, but also modern... can be used for a boy or a girl...
A little tearing on the patterned paper, to add some interest. I matted another patterned paper and tied some ribbon around that and off-set it - mainly because I don't always like the "rigidity" of cards that are always "perfect" - this makes it interesting.
Hope you can join in our challenge at Patties... see you there
