Here's a close up of the detail.
I liked the pattern and the little cut out detail but I wasn't too sure as to how I was going to create it. I originally though I would die cut a leafy frond and use it on my card but whilst I was looking for my cutting plates I found a freebie stamp that I preferred instead. I used three colours of Adirondack ink to repeatedly stamp the image. I then cut a panel from pink card to add the little holed detail.
Here's how it turned out.
The pink is a little brighter than the material but I'm pleased with how it turned out.
Please pop over and join in the fun. I won't have anything to chose from if you don't. The design team have created some really lovely cards. I'm pleased really as, once I'd picked my theme, I wasn't sure how it would be received. They've really stepped up. Thanks ladies.
Thanks for reading.
Love Dawn x

Well hello Dawn, so nice to see you, a brilliant idea, no matter whose it was. I was so pleased you suggested it and the DT seem to have enjoyed it. There was me, all these years, imagining you with dark hair. I love how you re-created your dress, even down to the little cut-out detail. Hugs.xxReplyDelete
My hair was dark for years hun. I got fed up one day and told my hairdresser to do something with it and blond highlights is what I got. I love my hairdresser she just gets on with it. Love Dawn xDelete
