I am a huge Jane Shasky fan. Some of you may have had her CD before it was retired, but now we have a couple of cardmaking pads that give you the opportunity to have many different designs to work with and at really quite spectacular prices – only 20p a sheet.
This particular card uses her passionflower design (from pad number two). It is one of my favourites as I adore passionflowers. When I was a child my mother had a huge passionflower vine in the garden and I was always fascinated by the complex centres of the blooms. But I also love the colours in this design, so gentle and pastel.
Often the content of the topper, although clearly important, can be overshadowed by a bad choice of backing papers or tones of plain card. Take a lot of care when selecting what goes with your main image. Gentle colourways are very often a much safer bet than choosing something bold and vibrant.
