Let your Hair Down

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the frame, I cut dies #4 and #6 together from the Sue Wilson Classic Adorned Rectangles out of Coconut White Card. I stamped the flower head from one of the stamps in the Woodware Small Fennel Stamp Set around the frame using Jet Black Archival.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Hand Drawn Sentiments Stamp Set onto another piece of Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival I cut it out using die #3 from the same die set. I popped a piece of Black Card behind it. I popped my frame on top using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I matted onto Coconut White Card, Black Card and then popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I made a flower out of Coconut White Card and Black Card using Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set and added stamens cut using Sue's Dendelion Clocks Die Set. I popped a Small Black Circle Dazzler into the centre. I cut a couple of leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Laurel Leaves.

I completed my card adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner.

  15. Good Morning Julia, that is a stunning card I love the whole design and the background and the diecut really just pop off the card. hugs Shirleyxxx

  16. Another lovely card. Thank you.

    Now back into the land of fast broadband after a sojourn in Wales clearing out my late mum's flat and have managed to catch up with two of last Monday's shows which I thoroughly enjoyed. Yet another technique shown with pixie powders, that of brushing to make a large background which is really effective. I assume you used coconut white card rather than watercolour card for this. Another technique to add to my note book, thanks for that.

    Have a successful time at Stitches.


  17. Love black and white cards and this is no exception.
