Spotlight embossed flowers

Inspired by Seven Hills Craft's September challenge, I thought I would have a go at spotlighting not only the colour but also the embossed outlines. Technically, this turned out pretty much how I hoped it would. If only I had remembered to keep my hand out of the still-damp marker, which meant I had to… Continue reading Spotlight embossed flowers

Glitter cogs with stripes

This nearly ended up in the bin. I had die cut the cogs from both pearlised grey and a panel of black card, layered them over some double-sided adhesive sheet and added an ombre glitter effect inside the cogs.

Birthday: Butterflies and flowers

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 1st on the first day of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I couldn't share it then though, as the person it was made for also follows me on Instagram, so I restricted myself to posting the circle that was die cut from the… Continue reading Birthday: Butterflies and flowers
