Simply Scrapping Blog Hop!

April 25th 2011

Welcome to the Simply Scrapping Monthly Blog Hop! This is the first of a new monthly blog hop for the Simply Scrapping Group. This months 'theme' is "Spring" or "Autumn" depending what part of the world you live in!!! As I'm in Australia it's Autumn here but I wish it was Spring as I'm not a big fan of Winter and being cold!! So my card is a bit of Autumn and Spring - I've used Autumn leaf colouring as the background paper to the CS Designs Floral Sun Montage image but I've added some bright spring flowers! I found the saying at the Quote Garden Site and thought it suited the digi image.


The background paper has been made by dragging various coloured paints across the paper with a credit card. Once it dried I stamped some flower images on it and then I put it through the printer to add the Floral Sun Montage image which was then cut out and layered on Bazzil cardstock. I cut out flower stems from some patterend paper I had and added them to the sides of the image and added a little quote which I thought was fitting for the image.


It would be great if you could become a follower of my blog - so please consider clicking that "follower" button before you leave - I would love to have you keep up with my new creations!

Sharon, I love what you've done with my Floral Sun Montage design, very dramatic and the credit card paper technique if fabulous. I'm going to have to give this a try. I also think it's great that you combined both Spring and Autumn and you're right the sentiment is perfect.
