This set of 8 have found a new home with my mother - some of their friends are having a rough time at the moment with illnesses and losing loved ones so I think they will come in handy.

I can't resist resist
I was so inspired by Jennifer McGuire's cards using resist techniques - not that it is a new concept, but you know how you see something again and you ask yourself why you haven't done that in a while? This one was a pearlized resist technique - heat embossing with pearl embossing powder then using distress inks to colour the surrounds. I used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to give the whole focal panel a pearl shine. Instead of using the dots on the whole background I decided to just add some rows to the bottom using the same colour distress ink as the focal image. The cards are finished with some ribbon and pearls.
