Summer Flowers

Outlawz Thursday Challenge

Thinking of You

The twist on the Thursday Outlawz challenge this week was to add flowers. Usually I would add bright colourful flowers but the image was done with water soluble oil pastels and it had a lovely soft look so this was what I went with. The image is an old retired SU set that I don't think I will ever tire off. The sketchy look always looks so nice when water coloured. I think the only piece on this card not old is the lace but it is srill an off cut.. I have so much scrap paper I don't think I will ever manage to use but I am trying. It's fun trying to match it all without cutting up new papers. Even the leaves are from a box of left overs that I keep just in case.

The pastels used I bought for $6 dollars a few years ago at  my local thirft shop and I was surprised that they work as well as they do. There are only 12 in the set but they blend well and are fun for a quick card.
