DCM mid week extra- weather/season cards.

The design brief was to make a card about the weather or season near you.
Well, I'm not sure about outside, but it is still a bit cool in here. The boiler is having tantrums & only lights when it feels like it!!! They are coming back to it, but they are also run off their feet right now & are doing their best to fit me in between other jobs. Let's face it, there are no doubt others in the same predicament as me.
So my card is more of the season than the actual weather. It is a parchment design of a daffodil.
The card has a daffodil drawn onto it & coloured in with pencil crayons. I have then made the same daffodil embossed onto the parchment & covered over so the colour comes through like watercolour. The edges are a bit raggedy, admittedly I have precious little patience at the best of times & after so long pricking holes to tear the edges away I get a bit bored....
