It's a Beautiful Day

What a gorgeous two days we've had. Low humidity and low-er temps. Perfect Spring weather. Which leads me to my card for today. Flowers remind me of Spring . . . so I'm sharing a "flower" card with you.

I used two Doodle Pantry digital images: Watering Can and Petite Bouquet. Using the .png files, I combined the two images so it appears as if the flowers are in the watering can.  You don't need fancy picture editing software to work with digital images . . . I did it all using MS Word.

I used the B&W line art rather than the color image.  I decided to pull out the colored pencils for this card rather than my Copics. Sometimes we just need to go back to the basics. 

And with digital images, why waste an entire sheet of cardstock printing just one?  Print several and make a couple extra cards.  What a perfect image for birthday, get well, sympathy, thank you or just because.

Note: You have one more week to link up with Doodle Pantry's Monthly Challenge. There's a prize being offered and if you use a Doodle Pantry image (there are several free ones available), you'll receive Classic Cars 2 for free.

  1. These are very pretty, Heather! I like the look of this image with the pencil colouring, gives it a nice soft look.

  2. I admire you doing this in MS Word, I can't get the hang of it - give me Photoshop anytime LOL. I agree about the printing, may as well do 2 at a time. Great cards pretty too.

  3. Lovely combination of image. They look beautiful against the background papers. Wonderful soft coloring.

  4. Beautiful cards Heather! Love the coloring with colored pencils! These are really gorgous!
    Hugs, Sarah T

  5. Clever to combine both images. They look perfect together! These cards are so soft and pretty
