Garden of Life!

So I was swimming my laps this morning and thinking about making cards (of course) and was trying to think of an idea how to use the fab inspiration from Mama Elephants current challenge.  Then I thought of my Mother’s obsession with her glass bowl with said flowers in the centre and I knew that there was no way I could make anything else until this was created and out of my head lol.  So here it is…   hope you like it Mum x.

  1. Absolutely stunning Therese! You have captured the elements of the inspiration so well – your image is so light, it’s ethereal! Must have been all that water around you while you were doing your laps lol. Your mum will love this! Good luck with the challenge – you will be a great asset to ME, as I know you do wonderful things with their stamps. Hugs, Ann

  2. Oh, Therese…This is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love how you shaded the flowers and your glass bowl is amazing! So creative and really stunning!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, Therese! I love the soft coloring and the glitter at the bottom of the bowl. This would make an awesome video tutorial!

  4. Wow, this is beautiful. How you’ve coloured those flowers is amazing, and the shading under the bowl is faultless. Fabulous!
