    there is one thing that really stood out in your first card, the hearts and flowers, the use of the clear 3D liquid is just excellent you have made the stamped image have another dimension.

    Love all the different materials and textures you have used on your 2nd card.

    This is gorgeous Kim, and the image is just fabby. I have been studying your colouring and I would never have put ruby and gold together but the shading is just right isn’t it. I can feel a trip to your flat coming on to have a play. I’m packing my case as we speak, put the kettle on !!

    Take care and hugs,
