a-tiss-ue pt 2

okay. blogger is being naughty so have had to put photo on flickr first.


over at cardexchangeuk, we're doing a tissue paper card swap, having only just purchased some white tissue paper (for I am attempting to pretty up a candle) I decided the Goddess's were handing me my fate on a plate, so I've signed up for the swap, and also an atc swap but thats for another post.

My second attempt, which has given me an idea for something else as well......

Used an A6 white card blank, stamped a flower design onto the white tissue paper using Glam Gold pigment ink, folded that over a smaller piece of white card so no glue marks would be seen, then using the Glam Gold and also Metallic Bronze dabbed away at both flower embellishments till I was happy with the effect. Stuck everything on and blinged it up a bit with gold cord and some gems.
Was going for the simple and sophisticated look, managed the simple not sure about the other *g*
Have entered this card into the following challenge/s:
