I took a picture of some daffodils in my yard and wanted to make something along with a great quote of daffodils from Shakespeare. I stamped some flourishes with black Brilliance ink onto black mat board and embossed them with black Distress Powder. Love the tone on tone texture this gives.
I cropped my photo and adjusted the color in Photo Shop. Adhered the photo to the mat and adhered the vellum on top of the photo. Simple, but I like it.
Very appropriate quotation, as the March winds were very strong today, and the daffodils seemed to dance along.
3/22 Update: Decided this needed something! I added a gold border around both the vellum overlay and the black mat with a gold leafing pen. Now it is finished.
