Well, clearly I've got a lot to learn on the photo side of things, as after playing around with the camera for an hour this is the best I could achieve. But keen to get the first post up, hope you will all bear with me during the learning curve. Things can only improve !
Down to the card: The background is sprayed with Glimmer Mists daisy yellow which I sponged off, then laid over a stencil cut from Cricut Storybook on the wonderful new stencil material from Cricut (supplied by Sir Stampalot at Petebrough). I have then oversprayed with terracotta, gold and irridescent gold.
The main image is stamped with one of my all time favourites - Stampendous P107 and embossed with detail gold. The bird and scrolls are cut with Cricut Home Decor and stippled with Adirondack Acrylic Dabbers in sunset orange and gold. The card is finished off with gems.
