DC March Friendship Swap.

Sorry about the glare from the acetate.
Close up of the stamped design.

I've had a play this month and come up with this easel card which is winging its way to Dianed. I've got a new camera too but I think the photos are the same as usual!!

I started with a stamp from the 'Lavender' themeplate designed by Sheena Douglas for Creative Expressions. I coloured this with Promarkers. I then restamped the image in black Stazon onto acetate and fixed this ontop of the main image with brads. The large lavender stalks were glittered with Crystal Stickles but I'm going to get some purple ones next time as they came out green! The sentiment is a cuttlebug die, flowers (aren't they just to die for, especially the little ones) from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls and ribbon finish it off. I was pleased with this one - I do like to make cards that are different from the norm and that take just that little bit more effort. I think that's why I don't make that many these days!!


  1. Wow Sue that's really stunning!! Love the image and all the details :-)
