With all this nice summery weather around I fancied making a really bright card. I took a photo of one of my oil paintings, played around in word, shrunk the image down and printed off onto 160gsm cardstock. I then glued onto a piece of thick cardboard and cut into 1" squares. (I did this faux tiling on another of my paintings for my Dad's Fathers day card and thought I would have another go.) I coated each tile with Glossy accents and once they were dry I reassembled on white card to mimic the grouting .
The flowers were made using Memory Box 'Fancy Blossoms' style 98312 and die cut from snippets of white card that I then coloured with Promarkers to match the colours of the Parrots. The leaves were die cut using Crealies Creative shapes CL CS 11,16 and 18. from various green snippets of paper/card. Feathers were dyed to match the flowers. Swirls were made using Sizzix set 656323 again from white card coloured using Promarkers.
Faux tiling and flowers were mounted onto plain green textured cardstock which was adhered to front of card. Sentiment is a Britannia word and alphabet dies.
