My friend "who loves whispering with sheep" asked me to make a card for her. She wants it to be 'nature'-inspired, well, based on my understanding of the photo she attached in the email.

I initially wanted to do a photo-transfer for this card, using packing tape. But then I realized the printer I have at home is inkjet, not laser jet. The technique can only work on photos printed out using laser jet printer... darn. Otherwise, I think that would have resulted in a really cool looking card.

Didn't have any paint I could use as well but found this really pretty paper which I've been hoarding saving. It's from Basic Grey and I fell in love with this piece so I've not been wanting to use it.. :P

                    Code :  AO0056

But it does shout 'nature' and the colours are suitable for a guy.... so, I distressed the edges to make it look slightly edgy and used glossy accents to highlight some of the flowers (I don't know what they are) to give the card more interest. She wanted it single layer with no sentiment.... I hope she likes it.
