Blue sympathy flowers

Well it's been a much better today than yesterday, bright blue skies for most of the day.  Think we were very lucky to escape the terrible flooding up the country and over in England.  Must be awful, especially this close to Christmas.

I might try and take a better photo of this card, it looks so much nicer in real life.  I was inspired by this week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast ... HERE's Laine's original.
I copied her bokeh effect by diecutting a small circle in some scrap card and then chalking up pale blue, darker blue and sage.  My flowers are from a Simon Says set - coloured with watercolour pencils and then clear gloss and glitter added to the flower centres.  I also splattered my bg with some of the blue watercolour.
Dead quick and very easy to create ... I think I might make a stash of these!


  1. Hi Lynne one of the reasons that I love to visit other crafters blogs is seeing the great diversity of styles in crafting, the heavily embellished the quirky fun style and this wonderful, lovely soft, delicate and quite beautiful style, the simplicity of the design, the colour and image is quite enchanting I love it so much.

  2. I like the soft pastel colors of your bokeh pattern. They don't detract from your pretty flower image and add an interesting background effect. Pretty card!

  3. Perfect card for the sad occasion, I love your background...hugs
