Here is the first one. I have had this in my stash for years and years. Not because I thought I would ever actually use it but the colours and design were so bold I rather liked it in a odd kind of way.
I trimmed the front down very slightly to fit within the die cut frame which I cut from white 300gsm watercolour card. Base card is from purple cardstock which matched the birds plumage perfectly. There is a sheet of acetate between the frame and the image but I have managed to take the photo without any reflection showing. Don't ask me how as I had bright spotlights beaming down from the ceiling right above at the time! The frame is a die cut by Crafts -Too 'Rectangle Stitch Hole ' my favourite go to at the moment. The sentiment is a die cut by Creative Expressions. I had it just in white to start with but it looked lost against the white frame work so I cut another in the purple card and attached it slightly to the side to create a shadow effect and suddenly the card all came together.
My second card uses another card front that I have simply trimmed down and attached to purple card stock.
Hope these are both unusual enough for you Zoe.
