As I may of mentioned yesterday I am domino 2 hour special this evening at 5pm on Hochanda ( channel 39 sky 663 and online at www.hochanda.com) on the latest ( non festive) range of dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. I thought I would show young of the demo cards for this evening. In fact this will probably be the first demo as I really like how this one has turned out!
To me this has a real retro feel to it like a piece of sixties wallpaper!
I started by stamping the Juliette stamp to die for in jet black archival ink all over an 8x8 square of bright white foundation card. I ensured that I stamped over the edges and tried to fit the stamped images to cover most of the card. Next I used the centre circle die form the Gillian farmers and tags sets ( which this stamp is designed to match the die)
Once this was completed I foam mounted this piece over a larger square of black foundation card and added a stick on pearl ( 5mm) in the centre of the black.
For the frontispiece I stamped the sweet leaves stamp twice in jet black and cut this one out using the outline die from the gillian die set. I folder these into quarters cut these along one of the lines into the centre. I then attached the two die cuts and placed a pearl in the centre so that it fans out.
For the border strip I cut a long strip of white card and cut the insert die from the atlas triplet. I fitted the die back into the die cut on the last pattern to extend the filigree section. I backed this with black and added a mat of what card. I then added this to the left hand side of the card and placed the stamped fan in the centre.
I hope you can tune in to see what I am doing especially as it is a 2 hour show so I will get more time for demo!
