First, the 'fire and ice' technique...
then using the gilding flakes again but with some Cosmic Shimmer laquer to create the centre of this setting.
The same card with a different sentiment and outside die...
then a simple card which I think would be suitable for a man.
The female version of the above card just by adding some flowers and PVA dots instead of piercing.
A real girly card, however, was disappointed with the colour matching as, even though I used the same dye pad for the edge of the dies and the flowers, it looks different in the photo. Also the gems and pins appear a different colour than in real life.
Finally, this card didn't end up as I first intended due to a "happy accident" when trying to match up the striplet die, however, with a few adjustments and add ons, I was pleased with the end result!
