Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped a few drops of Flamingo, Amethyst and Limeade Alcohol Inks onto a piece of felt on an Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool and used this to colour a piece of White Gloss Card.

I cut the Spellbinders Symmetry in Space Kaleidoscope Die out of Coconut White Card twice. I snipped away part of the straight line edge on one side of one of the die cuts and glued both die cuts to 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 cut the sentiment from more of my background paper using the Spellbinders All About You Die Set. I cut one of the dies from the Spellbinders Sunflower Photo Frame Die Set out of Coconut White Card twice and added my sentiment.

I made a flower from more of my background paper using Spellbinders Pinwheel Posies Die Set. I added an embellishment left over from my last One Day Special on Hochanda - made using Clear and Blue Raspberry CS Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals in a mould made from a Wendy Vecchi embellishment.

I cut a couple of leaves from Coconut White Card using Spellbinders Romantic Vines Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to 3 of the corners and a couple of Coconut White mats.

  23. Love this background color combination. I will have to check to see if I have these inks in my stash and use them. I like how you cut away the straight line edge to add it to another cut to extend the design. I enjoyed your shows on hochanda making molds! What fun - COOL.
