Inspired by Jennifer Mcguire

Hello there! A few weeks ago I saw some beautiful faux laser cut cards made by the very talented Jennifer Mcguire on her blog and I really wanted to try out this great technique.

 For my card I used a flourish die and to add some interest I made a watercoloured background using distress inks, a stencil and some pearly water. These cards really are fun and easy to make and Jennifer has a great video on her blog showing how she made them here.  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today xx
