Some time ago I saw this card in my travels. Now I have Googled and e mailed trying to track down the post or indeed the person that is Trish Hughes...but alas...to no avail....so Trish....I still wanna say a BIG thank you for the inspiration for this card.
Whilst in Singapore, I did some rummaging for Andrea through the craft shops to find her some 1/2 metallic silver pearls. I was successful, and I included MY version of this card to go with the crafting happy mail to her...
Now this reverse mask in on a mini note card. I got to (finally) use my 2 3/8" scallop circle punch to form the outer mask and used a 1" circle punch for the sun/moon mask. From there it was a very (tenuous) job of sponging the background colours and then building the flowers. Lastly, the circle was removed and the bird image was stamped. Slightly close up versions here.....
For a first attempt, I thought it was OK. Andrea was very gracious in her appreciation and liking of the card. In a way it was karmic, because I received the note cards from Andrea as blog candy sometime ago.
May pluck up the guts to try this again at some stage, but I also have ANOTHER gunna file special coming up!! Stay tuned for that one.
