Spring Time-Lucky Save

 Morning and I have a card to share with an image that almost ended up in the bin but the more I looked at it the more I liked it lol and we altered the clocks for Springtime too-what do you think ?

The current printer loads from the bottom and comes out above but comes out printed on reverse so if you use glossy paper you load it upside down-so when using ordinary printer card you have to remember which way you loaded the paper which obviously I misjudged!!!

NOW I printed out the pocket watch image I won from Polka Doodles,then printed out the 

Wild Flower Blossoms I won from Jan's Digis but didn't reverse the paper so over printing!!!

Actually quite liked the effect so went with it and coloured the flowers with promarkers and left the pocket watch as is. 

Strips of paper from Evening Blooms paper pad from The Paper Boutique, and the stamped sentiment is from AALL&Create

Lynne said...

That's lovely Carol, it looks as though it's meant to be and the paper is so pretty too x

HilaryJane said...

Your card is great, love those images and how you have used them The paper matches perfectly too. I am glad you didn't ditch it, it is hard to see the issue in the photo but I assume part of the image is glossy and part not. I am sure that could be a good look, maybe you have stumbled on something xx

Leanne said...

Cool layout, and the image is great, nice paper too, so glad you played our challenge at Krafty Chicks Challenge.

OH! Carol, this is so beautiful, a mistake? What mistake, it looks fabulous and I'm sure the recipient looks at the overall effect not what paper is. I know to my relief hahaha
