Well, I managed to get my lie in yesterday - yay! Woke up to the sad new about the death of George Michael. I missed out on going to see him live in the 80's but Kathryn and I went to see him on his 25 tour - brilliant! So many talented people have been lost during 2016, let's hope that 2017 does not follow suit.
We really enjoyed Rogue One - I had already seen it but Nathan hadn't and I was happy to see it a second time.
My Craft Room is tidier now - still not really tidy but my problem is space and too much stuff to fit into it! I'm sure many of you have that problem too!
Here's today's card -
The background is the Pixie Powder Caught in Crystal technique. To recap, I used a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate
added CS Glue
and spritzed with a little water. I then sprinkled CS Pixie
Powders over - I used Purple Violet
and Teal Wash
. I spritzed with a
little more water and then sprinkled CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost
scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, opened it out and added it to my
background. I pressed it into the glue using a piece of Kitchen Roll and put
aside to dry (4 – 5 hours).
Once my background was dry, I cut the Spellbinders Wagonwheel Kaleidoscope Die out of Coconut White Card
twice. I glued them onto my background. I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B
. I added it to my background using 3D Foam
and trimmed away the excess.
I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Crysanthemums Stamp Set
onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival
. I cut it out using a die from Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Tags and the corresponding larger die from the set. I inked through both dies using CS Phill Martin Decadent Teal Colour Cloud using a Smoothie
I spritzed a piece of Watercolour Card
with water and sprinkled over Teal Wash and Purple Violet Pixie Powders. Once dry, I made a flower from it using a die from the Spellbinders Pinwheel Posies Dies Set and added a Craft Consortium Pearl & Diamante Circle
to the centre.
I added a couple of leaves cut from Coconut White Card using the Spellbinders Romantic Vines Die Set.
I finished my card by adding a Craft Consortium Pearl Heart
to 3 corners of my frame.
Sorry if I confused anyone yesterday regarding John Lockwood's One Day Special - no one told me that it was starting at 9am! Anyway, apologies if it messed you up. It's still on catchup at www.hochanda.com
if you missed it.
