Right, I'm putting all the "writing" at the top in case my Mum comes to look at the blog before her big day on Sunday and sees the pic!!
This is my first easel card, and after much deliberation on which cardstock to use for the base, I found one sturdy enough!
The image is a Miss Anya coloured with Whispers, and I distressed the edges with ink (never tried using the ink pad to fade in from the edges, quite like it)! I've used 2 different papers (flowers & butterflies) from Sharon Duncan's Embossibilities Elegance CD-ROM - it's Mum's and I've never tried it but it came out ok on paper. I've used 3 different types of embellishment (flowers, brads and eyelets).
