A floral canvas for quilling
The background for this card comes from a photo I took last year featuring a beautiful display of sweet peas and other summer flowers. But - you guessed it - I've been playing with Photoshop Elements again, and managed to create a kind of 'brush strokes on canvas' effect with the image. Please don't ask me which filter I used, because I can't remember! (It may have been the 'spray strokes' one, but I got so excited by the visual effect that I forgot to note it down!!)
Anyway, I thought it made a lovely colourful background, and I've added a little drop shadow outside the circular frame on this card for added effect. Then all I had to do was add some quilled flower petals and leaves to echo the colours in the picture.
