I recently made a version of this for someone else, but they couldn't see their name (sorry Scott)! So, lessons learnt, the colour on this contrasts much more, the outer border is wider and the line of text (Angus) is narrower to leave space above and below.
PS, Happy Birthday Angus!

This photograph is not great, but the colour on these is very rich and the detail profound! The motif's started out monotone, so Copics really brought this pair to life! Not so happy with the layering on these, but you can't achieve perfection all the time (so I'm told).

It's difficult to tell in a photo, but this card has a very 'quilted' texture. This was achieved by backing the patterned card with felt, then stitching and dry hand-embossing each diamond. I applied liquid crystal to the fabric leaf and flower petal and allowed it to soak in, resulting in that moist look.

I've been crafting on and off for 15 years and I can't believe it's taken me this long to really get into stamping and inks. So when this beautiful rose cardstock arrived unexpectedly in the post (thanks Ally!) I used blending inks and markers to create a vintage feel. The photo doesn't show it well, but I also added some liquid crystal to the petals, giving a dewy impression.

This C5 sized card was created using coordinating cardstock from the 'Love Nest' glitter paper stack by 'My Minds Eye'. Textured or matt features (such as feathers, cotton stitched border and stamped lettering) have been added to soften the dazzle of the glitter papers.
