Iris

Well, I think the less is more challenge has started me off on a new phase of making dl cards.
I thought this Iris image from A Passion for Stamps was just the job as the dimensions are perfect for this shape

I printed the image three times and coloured with my prismacolor pencils then decoupaged it up


The sentiment was printed directly onto the card using eight fifteen font
and the borders are punched using an xcut border punch called diamonds

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Craft Us Crazy  - Easter/ Spring.
Crafty Purple Frog  -Anything but Square.
Delightful Challenges - Flowers
Pals Paper Arts - Punches.
Amber's Crafts and Stuff - use flowers
 Creative Cottage - white/blank space
Top Tip Tuesday - Nature Inspired
 Tuesday Throwdown - Florals

Thanks for stopping by

This is stunning Kerry CAS but very elegant. I just love your colouring, the iris looks so real. Must admit, that yes, I too have made a few DL cards since the challenge, strange thing is I used to make loads when I first started card-making! Love Sheila x
