“Create a lovely addition to your home this festive season, with a great background technique and some wonderful freehand molten embossing. Just add a family photo into the background and the family name on the banner and you have the perfect, personal gift to give this Christmas!

My usual style is very clean and simple, but every now and then I get an excuse to get a little messy and this is it!”
