I finally made it back to my craft desk yesterday, here's what I came up with. The Paper Lace cartridge was a 'must have' when it was released, but I haven't used it much at all, in fact I forgot I had it! After playing with it for a while, it has shot right up to the top of my favourites list........

I decided to cut the delicate patterns in black, and the shadow in white, then colour in the image with Promarkers, rather like a stained glass window. I love the effect, what do you think?

For the first one, I cut the image at 3 1/2", matted in black. The background scalloped mat is from Just Because Cards, cut at 4 1/4" - I cut another one at 1 1/2" for the sentiment. Small scallop strip is also from Just Because Cards, cut at 3". Base scallop card and sentiment circle from

Craftwork Cards. I dotted some tiny beads of pale pink liquid pearls to the roses.

Here's another one, done in the same way. I used a scallop edge card, and folded back the edge. I kept the card simple, as the die cut decals really do look quite striking. I added dots of black stickles to the flower centres, and dotted a few gems around among the leaves, it's quite sparkly in real life. I am off for a day's crafting with my Florida mates today, I so miss that when I am back in the UK. See you tomorrow

  11. These cards turned out great, Enfys. It's funny how we don't even think about these things, like which side of the car to get into. Though that does happen sometimes when for some reason we back our car into the garage, hope we don't put it into reverse then ;- ) It would drive me crazy (really, no pun intended) having to switch back and forth like that. I'm such a creature of habit and non-thinking. Have a great time crafting!
