Flowers are blooming, birds are singing and Mother Nature is in her glory. It MUST be Spring! So over at CC&CC we are celebrating this beautiful
time of year.
Our great sponsor A Day For Daisies has so many images that fit into this theme. It was hard to choose just one. But I managed to pick this lovely image called "Cherry Blossom Cluster". Now I have to tell you, this card gave me a real headache. I wanted to do a parchment paper design using the parchment technique. BUT, after going to 6 different stores trying to find parchment paper - NOT vellum - I couldn't find any. OK, so let's order it on line. Sounds fine right - wrong! I found a place to order it and the paper would arrive in time to make the card. Another BUT - after I placed the order I was told they are going on vacation and the paper would not arrive until after the 1st of May. Gee thanx for telling me that AFTER I order it, lol! I'll step off my soap box now.
I ended up printing the image on vellum and colored it on the back. It did not turn out as soft as I wanted, but it's ok. I love the background paper though. It's a lovely piece of oriental rice paper I purchased years ago when living in Hawaii. I think that it helped save the card! What do you think?
I am so anxious to get the parchment paper. I think I will try using it for this image. Hopefully it will turn out better than this one, lol.
