I thought I should try to return to my format of showing a technique on a Tuesday as I feel things have got little messy recently with my schedule being quite busy! Today I thought it would be fun to go over what can be achieved with the Gemini range of dies. here I have used the Perseus I really like the way these dies have 2 separate outline dies one for each edge. This means that you can achieve loads of different looks with just one set. Here I have used the centre section of the Perseus die and the cutting edge that has the droplet on it together to make the main lilac panel Then I have used just the droplet outline (so called by me as it has a droplet on the bottom like a teardrop)
I started by cutting the filigree and edge die from lilac card. I then cut just the edge from coconut white card next I embossed the white card with the A4 embossing folder Tartan Trellis. Next I rubbed graceful lilac gilding wax over the raised area and buffed it up using dry wet wipe.
Next I added a strip of CE double sided adhesive sheet to the back go the lilac card and sprinkled diamond snow over the front so that it fills the apertures. Next I added small dots pf PVA pearl (cosmic Shimmer) on all the points of the filigree (the brilliant thing about Sue's dies is there are places on the die cuts to put pearls on).
I then cut the lilac piece into a wedge shape and foam mounted it over the embossed panel making sure that the bottom edge is offset so that the layers show. I then added a strip of orchid satin ribbon where the lilac joins the white adding a bow and a couple of hat pins I made with the new stick pin elements range from Creative Expressions.
Finally I added a die cut Enjoy in lac which I mounted on a white die cut which I sugared with more of the diamond snow.
Hopefully I have shown you a different way to use your gemini dies!
