I love the flower kind of anenome and earlier in the year I ordered a huge pile of bulbs from Tesselaars for my Mother-in-law to plant since she has a huge garden full of sun. I unfortunately have the poorest excuse for a little side garden so can't grow beautiful bulbs like she can, but luckily she shares the flowers with us so that we can take photos of them!
I've wanted to make a photo puzzle card as described on All in an Inch for a while (see the post I'm talking about here). As the current Embellish Magazine challenge is sponsored by Inchie Arts (and you have to use squares) I thought I would give the photo puzzle a go.
Here are the swatches:
And here is what I came up with:
The original flower wasn't true to the purple swatch, nor was the background to the green, so I 'shopped it. Here's the original photograph:
I enjoyed making this card, but I think the most fiddly thing was getting the black mats to measure correctly without the appropriate size punch. I think if I was going to make another photo puzzle I would invest in a 1 1/8" square punch.
Size of card: 4" square
Card/paper - Quill white cardstock, Canon matte photo paper
Extras - Kaisercraft grosgrain ribbon
Tools - Carl rotary trimmer, Helmar glue runner, Snow block, Sullivan's 1" square punch, papercraft foam dots
Challenge: Embellish Magazine - Use Squares
Thanks for looking!
