Mixed Media Monday - Romance


Here is my entry for the Mixed Media Monday Challenge : Romance.

A friend had a stash of vintage postcard images that i used to create this "forget me not" card. The angel was probably a place card - with space for the dinner guest's name. The bed of blue flowers just seemed to cry out for a focal point. So i combined the two together. I just added a band of gold pen around the edges and a bit of organza ribbon tied in a bow. I raised the angel up on glue dots for a 3-d effect.
The smudges are on my scanning bed - i really need to clean it up after scanning yesterday's beeswax collage!
Please check out the mixed media site for all the lovely artwork with this week's romance theme!

It's a different take on "romance" - no couple, but so romantic! I love the forget-me-not theme!
