Today I am running a workshop for a lovely craft group in St Helen's, the ladies have booked this with me and we will be making an array of projects as well as crafting and chatting. Remember if you would like me to run a workshop in your area you simply need to either get your local craft shop or group to email me and I will see what I can arrange.
Today's card is a real change from yesterday and back to the spring like yellow that I seem to have fallen for at the moment. It seems so easy to use this colour now I have eight designs in matching shades in my paper pack! ( honestly I don't just design for my own use lol)
I started by stamping the lily lattice circle in watering can archival ink onto the spring trail pattern in buttermilk. I cut this out around the edge and then added one of the sentiments that fit in the centre from my Lily of the Valley everyday sentiment set. I cut this out with the circle die in the Maggie frame and tags set and added a thin white mat cut using the larger circle in the Melbourne shape die set and foam mounted these into the centre.
Next I cut the three complete petals sweetheart flowers form the daisy dots paper and added the outline open petals ( that come in the same set) in bright white foundation card. I added a PVA pearl drop using Phill Martin's graceful mustard to add interest and finish the flowers.
to make the backing I embossed apiece of bright white using the Rose Blooms pinpoint embossing folder and rubbed Pearl Lustre metallic gilding polish all over out, i polished it off and cut a panel using the outline die ( die number 2) from the Australian background die set. I added this to a panel cut using the largest die in the Australian background set I added the waste from the spring trail pair behind this and matted it with primrose foundation card.
I cut the lace edged leaves ( you get both mirror images in the set) from bright white foundation card. I arranged these around the circle and added the flowers on top around the bottom right. I added the whole panel to an embossed piece embossed using the victorian tile embossing folder again covering it i the metallic gilding polish. A few more layers of white and primrose, a few PVA pearl dots and done.
Long instructions but thought I should make up for the lack yesterday! I had a fab day at Mountain Ash crafts yesterday what a wonderful place in the middle of a vineyard!
