Here's today's card -
Pinwheel Floral has been out of stock since the Hochanda shows that I did in October. It's back in stock so a great reason to share it now.
The background on this one is quite cool. I used a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I popped some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer into 2 areas on my Craft Sheet. I added a drop of Deep Plum CS Intense Pigment Stain into one area and Citrus Lime CS Intense Pigment Stain into the other and mixed well. I added the Citrus Lime to my acetate first, in splonges randomly all over. I then added the Deep Plum, fillinf in the gaps and overlapping the Citrus Lime in some areas to give a blended colour. I then sprinkled some CS Golden Sand Glitterbitz over and put aside to dry (doesn't take long).
I then cut the inner dies only from all 3 sized of flowers from the Pinwheel Floral Die Set into a piece of Coconut White Card several times to create a background.
Once my acetate background was dry, I glued my Pinwheel Floral Background to it.
Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I added it to my backgrounds using Woodware Foam Tape.
I cut a Stitched Flag out of Coconut White Card. I cut the sentiment from the Celebrations Shadow Box out of Antique Gold Pearl Card.
CS Glue to the centres and sprinkled Golden Sand CS Glitterbitz over.
