Make it Monday #93

I tried something new for this post. I am not a fantastic photographer, but love taking pictures. Recently my passion has been at several botanical gardens. One was in St Louis and the other Dallas. In one of my cardmaking magazines lately they printed on a linen cardstock so I had to try it. This picture was printed on Baronial Ivory Linen. Love the richness of the colors and the finish of the cardstock almost looks like canvas. The photograph is highlighted with Serpentine Mica/ Metallic. I also added a little texture with the wonderful dark green that is Greenbier Felt Grandee. The sentiment is stamped on a scrap of the Baronial Ivory Linen. The base card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory. Would love to know what you think. This was my post for the Paper Temptress this week.  Posting this for the weekly entry at Make It Monday
