A very special friend of mine celebrates her birthday today and here’s the card I sent her.


I’ve used the interference inks again but this time over black embossing on black card.

The rest is painted with Neocolours.

Here’s a photo of the b/g – a bit blurred but it shows the effects of the green, blue and violet inks.



Crafty Individuals have just brought out a new line of stamps and to celebrate, have some brilliant Blog Candy available on their Blog.  Go see and sign up as a Follower while there – well worth it for the inspiration!

LOL, she may well have loved it, Neet, but this one wasn't for Dot... it was for another special friend.
