My second attempt at a blog based challenge, this time Daring Cardmakers and the theme is "Quoted by..." The challenge was to include a quote on a card, the text of the quote could be incorporated by any means, stamps, rub-ons, computer generated etc. I have been dying to find a reason to use my recently purchased Elusive Images Wild Meadow themeplate and this seemed like the perfect chance, all I needed was a quote that referred to wild flowers and the Willam Blake one was perfect!
I made a background using some blue and green inks applied to my card with a sponge. Once this was done I stamped lots of the flowers from the Wild Meadow themplate around the bottom and sides. The birds in the sky are were added by stamping just part of an image from a stamp by Lavinia Stamps and finally the quote the quote was printed. Once this was done I added some silver round the edges with a Pentouch Pen and mounted it onto dark blue card that has a silver shimmer over it.
