Here are some more of my home made greeting cards. Unfortunately, because I'm using photographic paper, my camera picks up the shine. Consequently the colours don't show up as they should and the glitter lettering looks positively dull. In real life, though, they look okay. I'm not sure if I showed the first one before. It's a scene of the garden at my last house, but I've used it several times so this showing could be a first. Would you believe the butterfly is a lovely lustre yellow?
I saw this 'birthday' gift wrap and thought it might make a decent background with a few adornments.
The butterflies are lovely. They stick on the cards but the wings stand out. I'm quite taken with the different colours and the effectiveness.
More gift wrap provided the filling for the aperture. It is just a design of pastel coloured stripes but it looks quite effective with orchids at the side ... in real life, that is.
The fairy is actually lustre green. It is in 3D decoupage and the lustre made it the very devil to cut out and build up. I took this picture but it didn't show up well so I took it into the kitchen to see if I could get a better shot.
The green still doesn't show but at least you can see the backgound, and I do believe you can tell that the figure stands out from the card.
I'll keep practising. I might try taking pics with the iPhone, see if they come out any better.
