materials used
digi down load from http://www.charmedcards.co.uk/ coloured in with water colour pencils,i printed out onto white shimmer paper, quickly threw some clear embossing power on the image as soon as it emerged from printer and heat embossed
8" white card blank,and card stock from die cuts with a view far eastern stack
i used the go-kreated layering dies to cut the main Matt, the flowers were cut from a wooden die i bough off ebay, card candy from http://www.craftworkcards.co.uk/ i inked round all the die cuts,Matt's and decorative papers with an old rustcoloured ink pad to give card some definition, layered up with 1mm foam pads
weather here is not nice.dark grey and lots of showers...not very good for ting pictures, must go and start dinner, Emily's in from school and Edwards just home from college, not very nice when they are hungry, crafty hugs Julie-Anne
