It's Your Day!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started ny dusting a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the image and the sentiment from the Woodware Five in a Row Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. Working on the back, I started to colour in. I used a mix of Pixie Powder and CS Clear Varnish Lacquer. I used Golden Mint, Burnt Orange, Plum Twist and Mango Blaze. I added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost to the Mango Blaze Sections. I managed to colour it all in one session as I was pushed for time but I would not usuall do this - I would wait for each section to dry before doing the next. Also, make sure you put it to dry on a level surface - mine wasn't quite level and the Burnt Orange and Mango Blaze sections merged a little but I'm ok with that.


I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Piereced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Set B. Once my image was dry, I added my frame using 2mm 3D Foam Tape.

I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Creative Expressions Raindrops 8 x 8 Embossing Folder. I added my framed piece using 1mm 3D Foam Tape.

I completed my card by matting onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card.

Thanks for stopping by.
