It's been a busy week back at work ... too tired to create in the evenings ... so I just had too do something creative today but ideas were not coming very fast! I did manage to create one card and created some base layers for a couple of tags.
This is the card:
I began by colouring a piece of water colour card using Distress Oxide Inks (my first attempt at smooshing with them). I used the panel to die cut three wildflowers, I die cut the same wildflowers from some black card, then die cut them from a piece of card and inlaid the black ones back into the negative spaces. The coloured elements were adhered slightly offset so that the black could been seen and appeared to be the shadows. I mounted the panel to the card base with a narrow piece of black down the edge to echo the shadow!
Why all the shadows? well, this week's challenge at "Less is More" is all about Shadows!!

Before I go I'd like to share this picture of a flower in my garden - this is the first of six Allium bulbs that planted in the Autumn. I'm excited as this is the first to flower and each day it seems to get bigger and more beautiful.
