What a super lot of great entries we had last week and it is going to be a tough job for Wendy M to choose just one winner. Thank you all for joining in with us.
Now for this challenge I used a photograph of a beautiful 1920's/30's brooch and printed it on card, good paper and parchment. This is my favoured way of layering up my toppers so I have some parchment to emboss which I think adds to the dimensional effect. After I had embossed and decoupaged I coated the top layer with Perga Gloss to bring back the 'jewel like' sheen.
The backing paper came from 'Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady' CD from Joanna Sheen. I couldn't believe how well the dragonflies fitted in with my topper. From the spare bp I cut out a dragonfly and some flowers to add to the topper. I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it to, and it will give some inspiration. Your comments are always avidly read and appreciated.
Here is the card:
