Thankyou card

There is quite a bit of work in this card.
First there is the hand made flower and leaves made out of hand painted paper.
Secondly I stamped and heat embossed the first layer on the card, and I made a decorative edge with a Martha Stewart Border Punch.
There is also a hand painted background paper underneath this if you look closely.
And to tie it altogether I made a Thank You out of Spellbinders scalloped circle.
I was so pleased with the flower that I made more!
I intend to make a few more cards in the same genre.
Watch this space!

Hand painted background card

This card was hand painted. First with dye inks for the background, I used my Nestabilities to layer up the shapes, then watercolours for the collaged dye cut, I used Gesso over this to tone down the effect. I edged with gold leaf flakes. The snowflakes sit on some stiff ribbon. It turned out really well!
