Cards ..



I made these cards for friend's birthdays, one is horse mad and the other loves oriental stuff - so I used a Laura Ashley stamp for both backgrounds, stippling them both with a hard bristle brush and backing the Hero Arts butterfly collage with a cuttlebug embossed piece of toning card. I also painted the butterfly with Twinkling H20's and finished it off with a tiny, hand tied bow. The horse is a Joanna Sheen image from one of her cd's. I printed the sheet of toppers off on photo paper - it's come up quite well..

Hi de hi - I like these. The butterfly collage is very delicate and the image of the horses is lovely - like the way you've mounted the picture. Speak soon xx

Ed, this are both stunning - I love the purple butterflies on the one, and the horse card is equally beautiful. TFS!

I like the frame look around those horses. And the background is something I would not have thought would work so wonderously!
