Joyful Wishes

This was another panel that's been knocking around for a while. I die cut the stars with Robo Cop and inked the panel with distress inks, then I backed it with holographic silver card. It had something else stuck to it initially but I decided I didn't like it so it got chucked in the maybe box and forgotten about.
This time, I die cut an aperture from another card and over stamped a new scene stamp from Stampin’ Up. The deer is from the same set and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
…and I really love it!

And who doesn't like cake?

Nautical Blues

These panels have been kicking around for over a year, they were very simply made by adding ink and pearlised water to my large acrylic block and squidging it on the paper. Once they were dry I ran the sheet through my printer and printed the map pattern as a overlay.
One panel was stuck down neatly and the other was roughed-up around the edges with the blade of my scissors. Each was embellished with die cut silver anchor and a simple sentiment.

Inlaid Rainbow

This is a simple technique that I’ve seen in a few places. I drew the design up on Silhouette Studio and fitted four of them to the one sheet. I simply pulled each design apart and coloured one of the elements in with Promarkers. Then I fitted them back together and voila:
