I remembered an oil painting I had done 6yrs ago now and sorted through my store of photos and found this one I had taken of it. Ok it was actually meant to be Delphiniums that I painted but screw your eyes up, tilt your head side ways, don't look too closely and they will pass for Hollyhocks on a dark night!! The background is yellow which is what I wanted on the card.
Here's the painting I did in oils .
And here is the card I made from a photo of it. Base is made from cream cardstock and the sentiment background paper I simply created in word and then printed off and adhered to the cream card. The die cut is by Crafts - Too called 'Lattice Frame' which I cut in the cream and then used the inside die to cut out the image which I then reset into the frame work. Cream lace was from stash and also the Silver sticker sentiment.
I have been away on a 3 day Craft Retreat (run by Oyster Crafts) and got back home yesterday evening.I had free Wi fi in the hotel but it wouldn't let me connect up to my emails so now I'm having to play catch up with you all asap. Had a lovely time and created lots of things ( 9 items in all which I will be showing you later ) but boy oh boy was it tiring. I feel like I could sleep for a week now!!
Need to make another card for end of week as it is Little Boy's/D.I.L's Wedding Anniversary which the web tells me is Wood and Daisies. Eek. Asters are Daisies aren't they ? Well for the purposes of my card they are now!
