Anyhoo, I took her original idea and then...because I seem to have a "problem" with glitter (ei: can't seem to not use it), I decided to add our Dazzling Diamonds
along the "rays" criss-crossing the card. It was a fun effect to do, and gives off all that flashy bling that seems to be my signature style.
Now, while the following cards aren't holiday-themed, they do use a bit of an offshoot technique that's similar to what was done above. Often called "retiform" or "grid", they involve the masking off of a centre image with different shading & alternate images stamped within. Judging by the copyright notices, it looks like I stamped these back in 2003, it's kind of funny to look at my cards from way back then :)
