more cards...

I decided that the last card, nice as it is, wasn't interesting enough! So here are 3 more - same image 3 different effects. These are still quite simple cards - but somehow are more interesting - I think its the layers, the decorative papers, the sewing (love using the sewing machine to stitch onto cards...)

The image has been stamped in gold - which was great - but then when gold Perfect Pearls are brushed onto the wet ink it is fab! - (photo on right has been tilted to catch the light) it looks as though its been gilded. Lush!


Background papers are the great new PaperArtsy christmas papers - lovely, double-sided, and really versatile. Stamping in black archival.


This hasn't really photographed well (looks lovely in real-life)- its a resisted image (dye based ink brayed over the image that has been stamped with) versamark ink. The front page of the card has been trimmed short to add a gold edge and reveal gold stamping down inside edge.
