Three Commissioned Cards

Decoupage mare and foal picture using pinflair silicone gel.
Cut out gold circle with a Marianne die to back decoupaged picture.
Mat and layer backing paper, once I had aged it with chalks.
Computer sentiments, circle sentiment cut out with xcut 2"
scalloped punch and cloud sentiment cut with xcut die, both aged with chalks, mounted
on dimension foam and added to backing layer.
Large foliage cut from a Marianne die stuck to backing layer.
Paper flowers stuck together with silicone gel and a button threaded with brown
cord tied into a bow in the centre.
Silk green bow to finish.

A Farmers Card - John Deere tractor picture decoupaged, using pinflair silicone gel.
Mat and layered green polka dot paper onto black card to frame, before sticking to
green card thread polka dot ribbon.  Die cut three gears using Tim Holtz die using the same green card, 
then I aged the gears using precious metals antique paint and a copper stamp.
Adhered to green card using brads.
I then mat and layered a different backing paper on to black card and put through an embossing folder (Crackle) to add interest and adhered to the same green card used in the main image.
Computer sentiment cut out using xcut cloud die and aged with chalks.

A Gamekeepers Card - the water fall image/mechanism from Design House Meadow Collection.
I used brown ribbon and a yellow/green brad as a pull, and green brads to hold the mechanism to the backing mat and layer. I used a backing sheet from the Meadow collection as this matched  the design perfectly and layered onto dark grey card stock and blue respectively and placed at jaunty angles to look more interesting.  Brown polka dot organza ribbon place across and tied into a knot and a computer sentiment with the name of the person added and card candi to highlight.
