I love digging up old techniques and giving them a good old dusting.
This stunning card uses embossing paste -which I haven’t used for several months.
My embossing paste was on its last legs and the tip here is to keep it sealed in an air tight container.
I found my inspiration for this card from Gail Ellis -however, I have changed the colours and dies from the original.
