Hello! Valerie AKA AngelicLizard from swapbot! I LOVE the wax on mesh, it looks really neat, that is just one more art form I want to try.

I have heard of zentangles before, but didn't know what they were so now I know! :)

Love Comment Blog <3 (1/3) Hey there, I came across ur site via swap bot. :) wow, it's really amazing what you're making. I like papercrafting, too, but I haven't done any in quite a while. Well, sometimes life just gets me busy. But ur cards are really beautiful and show the effort u put into them. Great work - keep on crafting!

They all look amazing. But, I think my favorite one is the ATC - Tree. The colors are gorgeous and there is so much to see in the details.
