One Day Special on Hochanda this evening

Hi Bloggers.

I'm launchng a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with a selection of Sue Wilson's dies. Lots of other goodies on the shows - hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Eternal Ivy Embossing Folder.

I misted a piece of Watercolour Card with water and added CS Pixie Powders in Straw Yellow, Burnt Orange and Emerald and put aside to dry.

I cut dies #3 and #4 together from Sue Wilson's Swirly Vine Background out of Black Card. Once my PP background was dry, I cut die #4 from it and added it to the black decorative die cut.

For the central leaf, I added CS to a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I added the same 3 Pixie Powders. I misted with a little water. I sprinkled over some CS Aurora Sparkle Diamond Frost over. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, opened it and added it to the background. I tapped it down using a piece of Kitchen Roll and put aside to dry. Once completely dry, I cut the largest solid leaf from Sue's Autumn Leaf Trio Die Set. I cut the corresponding open leaf die from the same set out of Coconut White Card.

I assembled the card (yes, another proper card) as shown adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.
