A LOVE OF GERBERAS

Have you noticed I seem to be getting later and later with these posts?
Having trouble with my internet connection so I've got everything
crossed that I'll be able to get this typed up and posted while it's playing ball!

So another pretty quick post and it's to enter at Timeout challenges
where there's a 'surprise / additional' challenge in honour of Beverley
from Uniko Studio who gave birth to twin boys at the beginning of the month.

So the the theme is 'Double the Joy'

Although I'm using one of my favourite Uniko Studio sets
Pure Florals: Gerbera I decided against a baby congrats.
Sadly, I don't know of any more imminent twins
and I've already sent a card off to Beverley.


I've used a diagonal stripe background stamp from My Favourite Things
and the flowers are coloured using Derwent Inktense Pencils and water.
To add a bit more interest there's some glossy accents to the centre of the 
large flower and the stem of the smaller one and to finish 
some enamel dots from Doodlebug and My Mind's Eye.

Ok there was a slight internet blip mid-way through this so
hoping all appears ok on the blog.

Thanks once again for stopping by today and catch up with you again soon.
