Inspire card

Hi there,

I wanted to share this little card that I made for ZIG recently. I used ZIG Brushables to create the background for the butterfly. I absolutely love the water effects that can be created with the markers. The embossed layer was enhanced with a black gelato. Loved the end result!

Vintage Caged Bird Card

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a little card made for Scrapbook News and Review. I love creating vintage cards. The papers and beaded ribbon were aged with vintage photo ink. The cage and bird were lightly distressed. I added a little bling to the bird to tie in with the flowers. Loved the end result.
