I hope you all enjoyed Sue's (and my) shows yesterday, once again I learnt a road of techniques that I can't wait to try! Im afraid there is not a great deal of explanation on this card as the Pick of the Day has left me knackered and I have workshops in Kettering today!
Back to today and I thought it was time for something pretty and light! I started by using the striped weaving dies from the current collection and after discarding the middles I wove the pieces together to make this basket weave background. I foam mounted this over a piece of coconut white cardstock to secure it.
The next picture shows this weave in greater detail.
Next I made frame using the Classic Adorned Rectangle noble die using the letterpress technique. What I did was to add perfect medium to the debs section of the die and then run it through with the embossing sandwich. Next I cut the frame using the 2 plain edge dies within the set. I then dusted the debased area using a lilac mica powder and foam mounted this above the weave.
I made up the rest of the cards shown using layers of the lilac and coconut white adding row of the pearls around the edge to add a touch of glamour!
