I enjoyed making this. I covered a couple of 9"x 6"mountboard pieces with green foiled paper and then dabbed gold and bronze Brilliance ink pads on the piece that was going to be the top cover. On top of this I put a piece of Grungeboard that I'd painted with Viva Precious Metal paint. The Crafty Individuals stamp was stamped on to mountboard then triple embossed and edged with pink ink. I made three Grungepaper flowers and coloured them with gold Viva Precious Metal paint and edged them with bronze then put some metal brads in the centre. I added some Grungeboard flourishes and a pinky green ribbon. Unfortunately my photo doesn't show the colours properly.
Last week my friends daughter was 18 and this is the card I made for her. All the stamps used are by Stampotique and all the colouring was done with Glimmer Mist. I matted the stamped image on to Black Magic Card and sanded it so that the colour underneath came through.

I framed my caught in crystal piece with a black frame and used teal zircon and nutmeg Radiant Rain dabbers to colour the frame. The tag was coloured with gold Mica Mist and teal zircon Radiant Rain dabber. All the stamps used are by Crafty Individuals.
