Subtle and Simple

This was my alternative piece for the Gingersnaps Creations supply challenge where you are to use twine or string - there are still three weeks to play along. 

Its quite a subtle piece and uses my all-time favourite colour combo - green and pink!  I know this is currently not very fashionable when you think of all the dramatic colours that are now in the wallpaper shops.  My bouquet of roses have been layered and tied with the string and my paper ripped around the edges.
My stamped roses have been coloured with good old water colour pencils.

My page fits the criteria for the following challenges:-

Moving along with the Times - 2 B's  - mine are the buttons and the bird



Thanks for visiting!  Suzanne :)

This is absolutely gorgeous Suzanne. I really love the soft colours and the roses and bird are lovely.

I'm hoping to get back to gingersnapping at last as I haven't done one for ages and hopefully have a bit more spare time now.

Have a good week, Fliss xx
