I've linked this card to the Less is More, Lucky Dip Shadow challenge

Last week I went with a friend for a walk in a local bluebell wood, what can I say,  it was beautiful! So I knew I wanted to make this card using flowers and blue! I've posted a collage photo below....

 For the shadows I simply used a stencil and some light blue Ink creating a background garden of shadows, using a deeper blue I stamped some different flower and leaf outline stamps over the stencilling. I decided to use Vellum as an overlay so I heat embossed a sentiment using sparkling snow for a bit of glam onto a piece of Vellum,! The addition of the Vellum rather than just a simple sentiment I felt created even more shadow effect...And to finish I added a sequin and a couple of Swarovski crystals.  Enjoy x

Spring walk

thats the theme this week at Less is more.

Spring evokes many colours but for me yellow has to be the most prominent one and of course it's the start of beautiful swathes of flowers,

So for this weeks Less is more challenge - Spring Walk here is my take on the theme. (Have to make a confession here ....but my positioning of the frame and vellum wasn't great but ....I've run out of Vellum so needs must...( I have limited supplies at the moment as I'm visiting my daughter and Grandaughters in Dubai... and, Its only really visible when looking from a certain angle...hope I'm forgiven..!)
