Add Some Texture
I used papers from 'Yesterday's Memories' for my creation and if you click on the image below it will take you to the Ooh La La Creations shop
I knew I wanted to use several different textures on the card, and as I was thinking what to do I also happened to take a delivery of flowers by post from a company called Bloom and Wild. On opening the box of flowers I first discovered the lovely textured golden ribbon, then I noticed that each of the delicate rose buds had been wrapped in net to stop them getting damaged, having finally lifted all the flowers out of the box I noticed that the lovely quote about flowers was printed on the inside of the box. At that point an idea started to form and so I took a picture of the flowers now arranged in a vase, on seeing the photograph on my computer screen I knew exactly the papers from The Yesterday's Memories CD which would work with the photograph.
I printed the picture of the flowers and I used My Craft Studio to overlay the quotation on one of the Ooh La La papers - this is a really subtle printed paper from the Wedding Day folder. I also printed the basket weave paper from the Roses folder.
I matted and layered the panels of paper, photograph and quotation onto dark green paper and then a lovely matt gold card from my stash.
I added the gold textured ribbon around the centre panel and added a pink pom-pom trim to the top and bottom of the panel.
I cut the musical stave from the dark green backing card and added this before adding the quotation and the photograph.
I made a spray of rosebuds from some paper flowers in my stash and added little pieces cut from the protective netting. I added more texture with the metal leaf and butterfly embellishments and finished off with some flat backed pearls.
This was the first delivery from Bloom and Wild and I have a subscription for a delivery every month. I am looking forward to all the bits I can recycle as much as I am to the flowers.
