Couple of cards



Made a superhuman effort to actually make some time for crafting yesterday, and made a couple of cards using one of my new stamps. Very simply made, with matting and layering and peel off edging. The rose was stamped on the green, and the stalk was coloured with aquatone pens. The head of the rose on the red card, was stamped on red card, cut out and adhered with silicone, then covered with glossy accents. The head of the rose on the other card was stamped on red silk card, embossed with clear powder, and highlighted with.......................believe it or not..........sparkly red nail varnish!!! I then wrote the greeting with a glue pen, and sprinkled it with red glitter.
