Fuschias and Butterflies

Well I have FINALLY got on here tonight! I thought I was never going to get here! I have had a very busy day today...after sleeping in and forgetting to meet Gemma for coffee, she came to my house and we had a nice catch up and I had big cuddles with her baby girls Amelia :) The weather was so lovely today that I decided it was time to get some much needed gardening done, and then it was time for work!

So I have had a very hectic, but fulfilling day, and I have ended it nicely by winding down with a cup of Yorkshire tea and finishing a couple of cards I started at work (it was very quiet!) tonight.

So here is card 1...
Again, this is an image from Complete Cardmaking With Your PC. I again printed it but I figured out how NOT to print onto the back of the card! What I did was position the image where I wanted it, then I inserted a text box to cover the part I didn't want. I then got rid of the outline, so when it printed, the part of the image I didn't want was hidden by the text box, so didn't print! Yay! I coloured it with watercolour pencils (again!) and finished with a tiny touch of glitter.

I hope no-one is getting bored of my Clean and Simple cards...if you are I'm sorry but I love making and sharing them!

I am, of course entering this into the Less Is More Off The Edge Challenge (more to share it than win anything!)

Thanks for looking...hope you like it...there's more of these to come! LOL

    Like your tips on how to position and print your images. Maybe you could add a page and put some tutorials on in more detail... I am very new to printing images onto card and could do with all the help i can get lol:-)

  3. I think i like this one even more than the last Lizy... the image has a little more flow and doesn't occupy such a square space!
    I'm delighted that you love this type of card so much.
    Keep creating!
