sunflowers

Hello there ...

I had a lovely Saturday with Miss Sophia ... She is and has always been such a happy little girl and full of conversation ...

Yesterday evening I had a play with some digital images ... Sometimes I just prefer to create with my computer ... trying out new things. 
I've never been one for colouring images ... I am in awe of those of you who do this with utter perfection ... Me? I like to play with graphics and these were the ones I selected from The Graphics Fairy





And with a little work (ok, a lot of work) in photoshop and print shop ... this is what I came up with


I just love how I can flip and turn those images ... took me months to learn how to make them transparencies though ... and I still have a lot to learn!


Can you spot that green butterfly again? 



... and the glittered centres of those beautiful sunflowers?


I printed the butterflies both on the card and separately to fussy cut and mount and I did the same with the lower sunflower
All that I added was a little lace and a tiny bit of my hand made tissue tape ... it looks a lot better IRL

I think I'll enter this into Brag Monday at the Graphics Fairy ... 

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments ... I really appreciate your friendship
I'll be back tomorrow with my CCCB project and till then I wish you a beautiful day

~ Ros ~
