Sunday, 3 May 2020


Morning and I have three DT posts today and the third one is for the ATG/Diamonds/Lace challenge at 613 Avenue Create.
I made this card for a 30th birthday using the beautiful stamped image Florana from Pip Art stamped onto P.paper and just used promarkers and glossy accents on the eyes/lips and bangle.

I then layered P.papers from The Works,die-cut frame from Spellbinders,the dewdrops/lace/cheesecloth and fibres are from my stash-I wiped white acrylic onto corrugated cardboard,distressed all edges and made the flower using a Joy die,foliage die from Elizabeth Designs and stamens from stash too.
