The side panel is created with the Black Ice Technique for some added interest and texture! The gem in the center is colored with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Blends Alcohol Marker.

This next one is made with the Grapefruit Grove foil.

It’s just amazing how it looks iridescent depending on how the light hits it.

About Me Page

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!

    I’m so, SO SAD this bundle is gone for good! I was trying to order mine today, only to find out the stamp set is the only part of it that’s available. I’ll order that tomorrow, if available? I’ll have to find another bundle to make my cards from. I’ll think about what to use. Thank goodness I got extra Foil sheets and DSP from Saleabration! So, I can still play! Thank you for sharing!
