All The Best

Hello bloggers!  It is now Lesley's turn on the blog!  Wisteria and white is the colour choice for today's offering (although it always photographs sort of grey :(      I'm not sure why!)  I cut the Lesley die out of wisteria card using both of the decorative outer dies.  I backed it with white,  I cut a multi layered frame using the Double Stitched Squares.  I added the frame over the background using mounting foam.  Next I cut a thin circular frame using the Double Stitched Circles and added it to the background.  I used the All The Best shadowed sentiment cut in wisteria and added a white shadow.  The card was accented with a Petite Forget Me Not flower and leaves.  I inked the edges of the flower with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink.  The card was completed with white and wisteria mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  6 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue from a dark windy yakkie Lancashire. I'm loving this sample with the layers, frames, and luscious Lesley in all her glory with your beautiful little forget me not flowers smiling at us from the edge of your circle frame it's absolutely beautiful.
Lisa is holding up so well considering. Although she's smiling her way through the cat photos being shown, I bet her heart is full of pain, that's what you call professional.
Hope your day is full of smiles Sue and thank you for brightening a very dull Thursday ☺ xxx

Hello Sue,

The Lesley die is lovely with so much detail. Each time I look at it I see pineapples in each of the corners, don't ask me why and I know you must think I am crazy. I like how you have cut both of the decorative dies into the card, it gives a totally different look done this way. The pretty Forget Me Not is the perfect accent.

Have a marvelous day.

Beverly

Hello Sue
Sorry for being absent for the past few days I was struck down with the dreaded flu and was unable to lift my head from my pillow. I have caught up with your beautiful past posts love every one.

Suzzette Yandle said...

The way you created your flower with the Petite Forget-Me-Not flower die is lovely and unique. Also enjoy seeing your multi-layered frames showing a step up and step down feature. Your Lesley die is showing beautifully.

freedomlass said...

Good afternoon, love this die, well how could I not as it's 'me' lol, love the colour too more what I would call a shade of Heather stunning flowers again too, I still need more practice at those as they never seem to turn out right for me.
