Foxgloves

Hey there blogging friends!  I wanted to show you some cards I did for a magazine several months back.  I completely forgot about them.  Since I am currently working on some sneaky peeks that I can't show you yet, I will show you some gorgeous flowers from Lili of the Valley.


I love these flowers for things like Mother's Day cards, etc.  I used the Maja Design papers and a little sewing.  The "Foxgloves" stamp has been colored with distress inks.

For the next picture I was trying to show you that I painted on some embossing fluid with a brush and then embossed clear powder on the glass jar to make it look shiny.  It's kinda a neat look in real life.


Thank you for your visit! I sure do appreciate it!

Hugs, Dena

Never heard of "embossing fluid", but I sure love the result on the jar! A very beautiful and impressive creation! Loooove that stamp!
