Caught in Crystal




I had so much fun creating these two cards for my exhibition. I used Sam's technique "caught in crystal" and although I didn't have any suitable inks, I used acrylic paints instead which seem to have worked well. On the card with the 3 trees, I embossed a "frame" around each element. There is also a little gold glitter on each card with looks lovely in the right light. Unfortunately my skills with the camera need a little more work! Thanks to Sam, my mentor for sharing this great technique!
