JRC_028 Picture cards

JustRite Friday Challenge 028, Sponsored by Copic: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

This challenge from JustRite was just what I needed to kick me into making cards with pictures. I have 2 sets (besides the font sets) from JustRite Stamps (so far) to choose from for this challenge. Since I wasn't in a Christmas-y mode and I couldn't think of any Christmas-y pictures I had taken lately, I went with the Seeds of Kindness set of sayings. I love flowers and have lots of pictures of flowers, I just needed to narrow down my choices and print some out. Of the 4 different flower pics I selected, I was only able to get 2 of them made into cards by this evening, tho I can only submit 1 for the challenge.

This Chamomile was growing wild in the garden, I was pulling it up just to make room for the veggies trying to grow! I thought this saying was fitting for these beautiful blooms and as a cheery, encouraging sentiment for a card. I don't often use white as the base card and leave it white. In keeping it white, like the flowers, I had to really resist the urge to sponge some color on to it!

I took this picture in the Lava Beds National Monument in California, right at the Oregon border, back in May. I was in awe of the little flowers growing beside the lava rocks, above the caves we explored. They were definitely "blooming where they were planted". Some of these also had touches of pale lavender to them, hard to tell here with a picture of a picture. For the card I tried to bring out that pale lavender a bit, along with the green stems and the rusty color on the rocks.
