Pink Damask card

Hi friends, I hope you are all safe after the bad storm
we had last night in the UK. We got off lightly here, just
 very wet and  very windy, but no damage for us luckily.
 
 
I have a card to show you today which is not as 'LIM'
or CAS as my usual offerings ........shock horror!



Well it probably is quite plain still but kind of different for
me. Enough rambling come and have a closer look.
 
 
 
 
 Errr and yes it's yet another pink one lol !



Loving all your beautiful cards I see while visiting
you all. Thankyou ................. so inspiring. 
 
 
 
Not liking how I keep having to buy all the lovely
 'stuff' I see you using though!!!...............you know
 who you are :)
 
 
 
 
 




I saw a lovely card over at the very talented  Viv's blog 
and it gave me  an idea to do a background.
 
 
 
 It's called the 'Belleek' technique after pottery of the 
same name.Supposed to give it a sort of
 porcelein/bisque  look.
 
 
 
 I have done a card before using inking
 on the background but I used the raised bits unlike
 the opposite here.Here is a link for  the how to HERE.



Memory Box branch, Die-namics Rolled roses,
