Birthday Flowers and an Xray

Waaaa, Sunday night already!  It's got quite chilly here, there's a definite feel of Autumn about today.  I've got my cosy socks and fluffy dressing gown on, and all ready for the next expisode of Poldark.  A whole hour of drooling over Aidan Turner ;)  He's even nicer in 'real life' with his lovely Dublin accent.

Anyway, my first card is for an old lady who has sight problems, so I tried to keep it to nice clean lines.  I popped up a few of the flowers for a bit of dimension and added a matching butterfly - on purpose, it's not even covering a splodge! ;)
My stamp is from an oooooold Stampin' Up set that hasn't seen the light of day for quite a while.  coloured with watercolour pencils and some clear gems added to the flower centres.
I stamped the BG with an old text stamp, but can't remember the make.
Here's another golden oldie stamp, this time from High Hopes.
Ha, I usually go through a phase of using my old stamps if a crafty shopping trip is in the pipeline, but honestly I'm not!

For this get well card, I coloured my image with watercolour pencils and went over his bones and the fish with my clear glitter pen.

  8. These are both adorable, but the X -ray is my favorite since I'm here from CB. I have to ask, though. I thought we had to add the definition to the illustration, not just claim what it is.

  9. Love the card and the stamp is excellent for X-ray....but it does have to have the definition on the card....

  11. Two more wonderful cards, Lynne. I love your extra touches like the pink scallops peeking out from beneath your image panel and the stars behind the image and banner. These seemingly small additions add a whole lot of interest and dimension!

  18. A super idea to use your 'diamonds' as flower centres. Such a pretty card, love those two colours together. Your card certainly has lovely clean lines and perhaps just enough white space for our challenge.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
