Quilted Illusion ....

 Hi Everybody,

This card is created from another of the 3-D embossing folders from Altenew and it is called Ranunculus.

It is so pretty and I have water coloured mine. But I found that as I added the water and coloured the flower  the paper stretched and warped in the centre.

I continued with the job though and once it was dry the problem didn’t resolve.

So I added foam pads under the flowers centre and added it to the base.

The rest of the image stayed flat but the foam pads supported the flower and it looked and felt as if it was quilted.

It was a very pleasing look and the finished card is lovely. So rather than panic or even throw it away I made the best of a bad job and turned it into a good card that would suit many occasions. 

Well done me and a pat on the back !!!

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx
