This is one of those cards that didn't come out at all as I saw it in my head, so I don't like it. Maybe I would like it, if my head version wasn't so much better!
It's very sparkly in real life. I inked up the stamp with markers (after first inking the flowers with my Baja Breeze inkpad) and then used 2-way glue and fine supernova glitter. The colours of this glitter are just gorgeous!
I made the little tag using the scallop square punch, and chopping off most of the scallops!

We are always our own worst critics. It looks great but I know the feeling when they don't live up to the head image.ReplyDelete
