The first one comes from Yogi Grunwald, whose blog I found while looking for some foiling ideas. Her blog is HERE. She is into all kinds of different beautiful art and she teaches and sells her art too. I was really interested in how she got the pattern for this gold leaf card and this gold leaf card. I was also looking at her cards she created with napkins. I knew how to do that, but the ones she had were unlike any I had seen. Wow~!
For the gold gilding she dry embosses her paper and then uses a Xyron, etc. depending on the size and then attaches the gold leaf. I think that's what she said. Anyway I received the most beautiful collection of napkins from her in the gorgeous envelope below. I won't part with it:
I wasn't sure you would be able to see the design she put in the S so here it is close-up.
Now for the second piece of wonderful mail from my friend, Jackie Kalchert. She created this beautiful Shaker card and I love it to pieces:
It was not easy getting a good picture of this with the acetate. Ha! See the net in the upper right-hand corner. Some of the little iridescent beads caught up there and it looks like of like bubbles! :-) The background was painted with Twinks and the bottom sand is cork. I wanted you to get a closer look.
A really awesome card! Thanks so much Jackie. You too made my week end with a Wow!
Thanks for stopping by everyone. Hope to see you back here sooner!!!
