Ireland's Shades Of Green.

Hi All,I am trying to play around with my camera and also trying to do something to the layout.I need lots of lessons.This card is again outside my comfort zone.I think I am happy with the outcome .On the two last photos I was trying to get a sunburst effect,with the background.Flowers are from my garden.
Product used; spellbinders Dies jewel Flower and Flourishes by Julianna Hudgins ,It is a Die that I use a lot as it gives you so many shapes.
Brads a blog hop prise from Kim Dallow and Creative Expressions.
I put Distress Clear Rock Candy on the flowers and leaves.
Mesh from a Flower arrangement.; I put Gleam Gilding Wax on to  the petals on one of the Flowers,I thought they would be Creamier ,but it is the first time using them,so will try them again,they are not what I expected,they looked totally different when I saw them Demonstrated on C.C.  So that was my days work for yesterday.Hope you all will give me feedback,good or not.

    Love the coffee pot and is that a climbing hydranger I spy (if so, that's flowered early).
    Love those Jewel Flowers and Flourishes dies. x

  6. Morning Ita, This is a really pretty card, I'm loving your flowers and they are set off perfectly by the mesh on the background. Beautiful colours too. I'm full of a cold and got a terrible cough at the moment, so feeling really sorry for myself at the moment ha ha.

  7. Hi, Ita! What a great write up of your experiments and obvious success in creating your very pretty Ireland card! A new camera always takes some getting used to, and your photos look fabulous! I'm constantly trying things outside my comfort zone, too, and find it actually increases my creative process in the long run, Ita. Your card is so pretty with the textures, jewel-centered flowers, and wonderful flourishy die cuts! Thank you for sharing! hugs, de
