Todays card came from one of my play times in the craftroom. I was a little bored and fancied trying something different so I dragged out some of my mags for a little nudge and much needed inspiration. I didn't really want to do an easel card, but when I saw the style of this card I realised I had never done anything like it so decided to give it a go.
Still sitting on my desk were the Hot of the Press papers I used recently, so I decided to use them again as I really liked the flowers and flourishes on them.
I dragged the sewing machine out and although it was only to do a bit of stitching around one of the layers I liked the texture it added to the card. I also used some WOC flowers and some Creative Expressions PVA in bronze to embellish. It is simple but a little bit different for me as I rarely use acetate.
In the magazine they had stamped on the acetate but I decided to leave it plain so that the flowers shone through. However, I am definitely thinking I must try this again soon too, as I haven't stamped and embossed on acetate in a couple of years now.
The flowers I used were not all the right colours so again I took out my Whisper Pens and altered them to suit. With this is mind my next post will have a little tip for you. It is about flowers, glues and Spellbinder dies. I showed you how to store your dies easily and now I will give you a little tip for using the packaging too.
Have a good day all. Linda xx
