I'm launching a new One Day Special on Hochanda at 6pm today with some lovely dies from the November release of Dies by Sue Wilson. There's another show today at 8pm and then more shows tomorrow at 9am, 1pm and 5pm. I hope you can join me.
Here's today's card -
So, to re-cap how it's done - I used a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I added CS Glue, spritzed with water and spread the glue all over using my finger. I then added Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders in Straw Yellow, Burnt Orange, Bronze Blush, Lava Red and Pale Olive so that all the glue was covered. I spritzed with a little more water and then added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.
I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, opened it out and added
it to my background. I dabbed it down using a piece of Kitchen Roll and
put aside to dry.
I wanted to use the Linear Leaf Background over the top of my Acetate but I also wanted to add a frame made using the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set so I needed to extend the Linear Leaf. It is a little bit tricky but it is possible. I cut it once and then slotted the left hand leaf column of the die into the right hand left column of the die cut. I've already cut this in the pic below and extended it lengthways but I wanted to show what I mean.
Black Card using the Mix & Match Friendship Die Set. I glued them to my frame using CS Glue in a Fine Tip Glue Applicator.
Sunflower Bouquet Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I painted the flowers with Straw Yellow Pixie Powder and the leaves using Pale Olive Pixie Powder. I shaped the flowers a little using a Woodware Shaping Tool on a Moulding Mat. I popped a little CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto Coconut White Card and cut 3 sunflower centres. I removed the backing and added Dark Bronze Polished Silk Glitter.
