Patricia Wing shows how to create exquisite cards using beads, thread, gems and lace.
Techniques such as pricking and embossing from templates, sewing on beads, making gem flowers and colouring lace are demonstrated in easy to follow steps, and inspirational photographs show many sumptuous cards.
Patricia Wing and her family run an art and craft shop in Gosport, Hampshire. Although she was 'useless' at art at school, at the age of forty she discovered a latent talent for watercolour painting and card making. Since then she has had her card designs published by Medici, Bishopsgate and Hanson White, and her work has featured in Crafts Beautiful and Cardmaker magazines. She takes great delight in teaching others to discover anddevelop their own artistic gifts.
