As promised, today I have a sneak peek for you from the One Day Special that I'm launching on Hochanda at 6pm on Boxing Day. I know it's a busy time with family and friends but I do hope that some of you can tune in.
The shows are all about backgrounds. The ODS bundle comprises of some Sue Wilson Background Dies and there are a few more background dies available outside of the bundle and some Finishing Touches Dies too. For me, the show is not just about the dies (which are all lovely!) but it's about the backgrounds you create to use with them and the mediums you can use to create those backgrounds. There are lots and lots of goodies on the shows and quite a few on pick & mix so hopefully, there'll be something for everyone. I've certainly had alot of fun creating the samples - I would have kept going if I hadn't another show on 30th December to prep for!
Anyhow, here's your sneak peek for today -
Ivory Felt. It comes in a pack of 10 sheets. Each sheet is 9" square. I've cut a sheet in half. I tend to do this when I' experimenting - if it doesn't work, I haven't wasted much and if it does work, I have a piece big enough to use.
Back to my felt, I misted it with water - quite alot of water, and then added Pixie Powders in the usual way. I used Plum Twist, Sun Yellow and Ancient Copper. You don't get such an immediate reaction as you do on card, it's a slow explosion. Cool though! Now, this isn't colour fast so if you do this, don't wash it unless you want the colour to come out.
I made a frame out of Milk and Rich Plum Card using the Indian Ocean Background and the Double Pierced Background Rectangles. I added it to my felt background, trimming away the excess. I matted onto Milk Card, then Rich Plum and then onto another piece of Milk Card. The overall size falls just shy of A5.
Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Plum Archival. I cut it out using the Pierced Flags Die Set and cut the next sized die out of Rich Plum Card.
Classic Foldover Flowers Die Set.
