Synopses & Reviews
A great source for ideas and creativity, this compendium provides excellent yet simple instructions for a large number of decorative techniques, including 3-D decoupage, pen and wash, flower pressing, glass painting, powder and metal embossing, and using polymer clay. Art nouveau, Celtic, oriental, and Victorian designs predominate, but fairy and rustic themes and a collection of paper-pierced and paper lace cards are also included. Additional information is provided and details the use of enhancements, such as rubber stamping, clear stamping, craft stickers, chalks, alcohol inks, sewing, beads, origami, craft punching, and quilling. Clear, step-by-step photographs and a set of templates make the designs appropriate for card makers of all skill levels, and there are dozens of beautifully photographed variations for more inspiration.
Card makers looking for all kinds of different techniques will find something to inspire them here.
