Stunning, Joanna … those gorgeous blue hues are fanastic against the crisp white … your shading in those bubbles of colour adds such a fabulous sense of dimension! Anita 🙂
Loved the shaded of blue you used. Stunning card 🙂
Joanna, Your cards are absolutely beautiful! I stumbled upon you while searching for cards made with the Paper Smooches Dots and Dashes dies. Your rainbow ‘love’ card popped up. Now I’m hooked. It’s refreshing to watch you as I have been stuck on videos from some of the more well known card markers out there, and they just seem to do the same techniques quite a bit. Your work has a look all it’s own. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your kind words Kirsten! It really means a lot to me! Hugs!
Hi Joanna ~ I happened to “find” you on Pinterest when I saw this post. I LOVE your CAS style and this card in particular. I’m definitely a Distress Ink junkie so this card definitely spoke to me. Thanks so much for sharing (loved the video) and I’ll definitely be back for more fun! ~HUGS~
I love your card. Thank you for the video tutorial.
