I thought I would share this card I made on Hochanda on my last One Day Special as I love this technique so much. Its a lot easier than it looks ( hopefully you were able to catch the show) if not t here's the details.
I sated by cutting the Vela Gemini die with one of the outside edges as well twice form coconut white foundation card. I then cut one strip with just the outline die to amok bank mat for the back. Using spray glue I added these 2 dies cuts onto the top of the mat to make a piece with the design in deep relief.
Next I piped in the dimensional PVA pearl glue to the appropriate spaces. I used deep rose for the flowers, spring green for the leaves, and cosmic pearl ( which has a mother of pearl finish) for all the other areas. Whilst I was careful with the colours I wasn't too careful with the lines as its difficult not to go over if you are sausage fingered like me!
To make the main element I cut the heraldic square die using the outline and the centre piece form coconut white. I cut another of the centre filigree pieces however this time I added the outline die so that I got a detailed square. Next I cut this square into the centre on each of the 4 sides leaving the piece attached at the centre, this creates the flower like petals from the square.
I attached the first piece to the oblong and using an Adirondack pen i drew in some of the pattern to give the front some pop. I then attached the flower piece and added flower snipped form one of the CE pearl Corners which I had coloured with the same permanent pen. Finally i added the piece to a couple of layers cut with the double pierced rectangles set. To get the matching line I left the piece in the die and drew around the inside of the die using the same pen so that all layers had the splash of colour.
I will be back on Hochanda with the next set of the current range of Dies by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions on Wednesday night at 8pm then on Thursday at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm. I hope you get chance to tune in for more techniques and new dies!
