Just for Fun!

21 May

Okay…. as you can see I am NO artist.  I made this for this weeks Just for Fun challenge http://jffchallenge.blogspot.com/.  Yikes! this took me right out of my comfort zone!  I wanted to use the Lady Slipper flower as it is my favorite Nova Scotia flower.  I have to admit, I have been obsessing over this challenge for several days now, not knowing what I was going to submit, I just could not NOT submit so here it is in all it’s glory *cringe* LOL! 😉  It is clear to see that the Lady Slipper just does not jive with the post card but I love that darn flower so it’s just gonna stay! I stamped the cute little scooter and colored it with muted colors in hopes it would blend in and I put a coat of mod podge over it to give it a bit of a glossy glittery look.  I look forward to seeing what the next challenge is, even if I am a little afraid! 😉

    Hi Lisa. What a fabulous post card. Really creative and original. Love the colours. I think the flower fits in great on your card. Is the “Lady Slipper” from the Iris family?
    Regards Florence.

    Please do not be afraid.
    I think the basket on the back of the scooter must have some of the Lady Slippers in it. What basket would not carry such a beautiful flower? I think that a young girl has taken this basket of flowers to her mother and it is obviously some special occasion as there is a lace heart evident as well. Love the background paper you have used and the whole links in nicely with the theme of a postcard.
    Thanks for joining us at JFF – see you next week – Hugs,Neet x
