New idea

A postcrosser mentioned in her profile that she preferred handmade cards. I rather send a handmade card and I choose an image I coloured a while ago. The image is from Sweet pea stamps. It is coloured with Copic markers (sketch and ciao). To alter it on the card did not satisfied me, so I had an idea. Why not cut the cardstock with the same die cut I used for the image. Then I would lay the image in the opening of the card. I hope I make any sense?? So the image is not on top of the card, but lays in it. All went well and very satisfied I will send this card tomorrow to the United Kingdom. I coloured the cardstock with acrylic paints (Van Eyck acrylic paint viridian green, blue lake and FolkArt evergreen). A bit of glimmer mist (Tattered Angels cosmos) was sprayed on top of the card. With the help of a rubber stamp, an acrylic stamp and a stencil I finished the card. I am so satisfied with the finished product☺
