Two fabulous cards Heather. I love the pink/red colours that come from the red shade of Brusho and the die cuts mounted so prettily over that wonderful embossed die which has given a great all over pattern to the background, and it does indeed look like quilting. x
Years ago, I ironed vintage clothing/lace/fabric for a wonderful little vintage shop. It was like a treasure hunt every time I reached into the ‘ironing bag’ to pull out my next project. I haven’t seen matelasse since I worked there and was amazed how perfectly you recreated its beauty on paper!!! Amazing! I must try this…am assuming you loaded the paper with dies and embossed with one pass through the machine? God bless that wonderfully creative-brain of yours…thanks for all the ‘Play’ you inspire for all of us! ♥♥♥
Congratulations to Pansy47! Beautiful cards – love the gorgeous Brusho coloured flowers on the fabulous embossed backgrounds. xxx
These cards are so pretty!! I need to use my embossing folders more – thank you so much!
Congratulations to pansy47, enjoy your prize. These are two beautiful cards Heather. I find all the flowers and leaves die cut from the same coloured watercoloured panel so very elegant. Thank you.
A perfect description for your background! Very pretty, feminine cards.
The background does indeed look like the matelassé bedspread, and how brilliant to think of this! The grouping of the pink flower dies in the corner…ah, just beautiful. While I always love your sponging and w/coloring, I love this one too!!! TFS & thanks for the idea of embossing with several dies. I’ve only tried embossing with the cover dies! Hugs
