Not my photograph

Good morning Bloggers, how contrary is the weather? Sun one day and torrential rain the next and so on ad infinitum.....
The beautiful photograph on this card was taken by the lovely Christine She asked me how to feather images and this is her first one so give her a big cheer please :o)
Christine has allowed me to use her photograph and here it is. I made matching paper from it too. This is a birthday card for a friend :o)

For once I didn't cut and fold my own base card, it is 8x8 and I can't remember where I bought the pack of 25 complete with envelopes!
I cut the flower and backing out using a Nestie then inked the edges. Foliage is a Cheery Lynn die and sentiment is SU punches and stamp.
I am looking forward to seeing more from Christine as she progresses :o)

Morning Jackie

Well this card is certainly beautiful... unfortunately that flower in my garden isn't anymore.. the rain has seen to that! But I do have some lovely sweet peas!

I'm slowly conquering photoshop... though it does far more than I ever will use or know about... I normally just use it to edit my card pics for my blog.... and it seems I was feathering the edges before, but just using the square or elipse tool. It's the lasso tool I've now found!!

As you know, I haven't used photos on my cards before, they are something totally different for me... but I do appreciate how personalised they can make a card... and love what you've done with this one.

Thank you so much for the mention too..

Have a lovely Sunday
