Treasured Memories

Hello all, Alison here with a gentle journal page for you today.
I've been playing with the Flower Market stamps again - it's such a delicate, pretty set of stamps, and I've fallen in love with it!
I used the stamps to create background texture for this page, stamping them onto some paper from Finnabair's Sunrise Sunset A4 pad.
I used Distress Markers to add some colour to the images.
This little beehive is just adorable!
I used an image from the internet for the photograph, just gently tinting the flowers in the photo with the Distress Markers too.
And I stamped and coloured the large pot of flowers to accompany her.
I think the quote is beautiful.
This was definitely a calming page to work on... adding delicate die-cut laces and layering it onto kraft card to finish it off.
I hope it's offered you a few moments of calm in your busy lives!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon.

Designer: Alison Bomber

Really love this. How nice the yellow flowers coming back on your card because the lady has yellow flowers too. This is so cute Anneke.

I do so love this creation. I am going to look out for the Flower Market stamp plate because it looks so very effective on this kind of gentle, softly coloured project. I love what you did with the flowers in the image. I adore tinted photographs. I have a beautiful one of my mother as a little girl. Julie Ann xx
