card sample using 'Crafty Individuals' and 'Inkadinkado' set

Hello anyone and everyone who may be following my fairly new blog. Today I am posting a card sample using a 'Crafty Individuals' image of birds and an 'Inkadinkado' clear set called 'dot flourishes'. The latter is a very popular set. Whenever I can get it I take it to shows as it creates such lovely backgrounds. I do have it currently in stock; it can be seen on the 'other' area of the website
The birds have been stamped on white card stock colour washed with pale blue. The flourishes have been stamped and embossed adding a touch of glitter and highlighting the end of the flourishes by adding punched out dots from the blue card, again adding a touch of glitter. The punched area down the left hand side has been created using a Martha Stewart punch.
I will post more samples in the near future. This card has been made by Anne Hide. Anne and Gaynor have been my stamping friends and card sample makers for some time. So many thanks to them both for their beautiful handiwork.
Thank you for following. Many thanks to Jules for her invaluable input and to Kath for guiding me through the challenge side of things.

  4. Hi Julia,
    Welcome to blogland. Found your new blog via Jules so had to call by and wish you all the best with your new venture. I love this card, the image is one that has been on my wish list for a while - but somehow gets supersceded when I'm out shopping. Your background design is gorgeous.
