Dewy vintage rose

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.

Ladybug clippie

With a little girl in mind as the recipient of this card, I designed the features around a hair clip I made using ribbon and a ladybug.

Paisley whale

With early intentions for these materials to become an elegant wedding card, I couldn't help but follow my design instinct and bring this cute little whale to life!

Wobbly window card

Suspended on acetate fingers, the 'happy birthday' lettering wobbles behind the window when the card is lightly shaken.
