Flourish card

Good afternoon friends, I have another
'Less is More' card to share with you
today.
 
 
It's 'one layer' card week and the theme
  is .....
 
 
Flourish
 
 
I decided to make the flourish the main
focal point. The card is an ombre one,
shaded softly in pink at the bottom. So
hard to see in this light though, hate
 these grey days.
 
 
I used an old stamp I have had for a
 while now. I used some distress ink and my
 waterpen to add some soft watercolour.
 
 
 
I thought texture would be
 good too. I used glue and some frantage.
I didn't heat emboss as I wanted to
 keep the texture. Odd I know but it
seemed to work!
 
 
I also used some Diamond dust and 
glamour dust also. I made the card
a small one 4"x 4 1/2", again to keep
the main image prominent.
 
 
 
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have
 planned. I have new craft goodies just 
arrived today so I plan to be mostly 
making cards  I think ;)
 
 
 
ps. Still trying to get my photographs the 
right size grrr! I have to use 'large' as
Extra large is too wide for my blog. I am 
experimenting using pixel size instead and
then original size. (No that was too large)
 
 
 
If you click on the photo
you can see it larger too. I really want
them portrait and not landscape but as
I use a tripod I have to crop instead.
 
 
What size do you all use to post your 
photographs? maybe I will redo my blog
layout, watch this space lol.
 
 
 
UPDATE!  Think I have sorted it now,
altered a lot of things on my blog to
make it simpler. Removed and moved
things too, hope you all approve ;)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hope this is a bit easier to see the sparkle.

  2. Beautiful image and with a glittery sparkle - perfect.

    I add my cards as large, perhaps it's the pixel in the camera that determines the size to use? Can't help you with any of that - sorry!

  16. Gorgeous card, Viv, really unique. I set my photos to extra large but my blog is wider than yours, I changed it a while ago. I think most people have widescreen laptops and PCS so figured going slightly wider was ok. Takes a lot of fiddling about though, I hope you get it sorted. But I think yours looks perfectly fine, can always see you photos clearly :)
    Sorry I'm so late visiting!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
