Hope you enjoyed yesterday's shows. I have more shows today at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.
Here's today's card -
The background is made using Shaving Foam and CS Intense Pigment Stains in Citrus Lime, Bluebell and Rose Pink onto Coconut White Card. This piece is actually second generation. For those of you who haven't come across this technique - I popped some cheap Shaving Foam into a plastic box spreading it around so the base was covered. I added drops of the Intense Pigment Stain. I used the end of a Paint Brush to create patterns in the Shaving Foam. I pressed a piece of Coconut White Card into it. I removed it and used a ruler to remove the foam from the card and removed any remaining foam with Kitchen Roll. I got a 2nd and 3rd print by re-distributing the foam and ink a little and popping more card on top.
I cut Sue Wilson's Alphabet Grid out of Coconut White Card. I removed all the letter blocks and added the empty grid to my background. I added a frame made out of Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4 from Sue's Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I added it to my backgrounds using Woodware Foam Tape. I matted onto Coconut White Card, Black Card and then another piece of Black Card.
I cut the Alphabet Grid out of Coconut White Card a second time as I needed a couple of O's, a couple of E's and a couple of L's. I also cut it out of Black Card a couple of times. I added the letters to the grid as shown securing with CS Glue.
I cut Sue's Pinwheel Flowers out of Coconut White Card and the complete flowers out of my Shaving Foam background. I cut the leaves in the same set out of Coconut White card. I added a Small Black Circle Dazzler to the centre of each flower.
I really do love the Alphabet Grid Set - you can say whatever you want to on a card. Great for scrapbooking too!
Hope you can tune in today.
