Hello Set for the markets for GDP108

I'm busy creating for the coming Christmas Markets and one of my focus areas this year is boxed sets of cards.  This set uses a few techniques and includes a Happy Birthday male, HB female, and 2 x Hello friends cards. Generally I don't include too many sentiments, but a mixed set is always popular, although most people just prefer Blank cards.
This week at GDP #108 we are CASEing Bryan King,and I have CASEd several parts of his layout.

The sentiment panel sits over some black metallic thread. The background is a watercoloured panel stitched to the card base.  The little elements are wooden pieces from my "useful box" and I have inked them using the babywipe technique using Lemon Lime Twist and Night of Navy inks. The same 'inkpad' was used to add some background detail using the Gorgeous grunge paint splatter and minidots. Some random bling was a good way to tie all the colours together

Have a creative week! 

Thanks for looking, and remember

"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
