Pixie Flowers...

Happy Tuesday,

I hope everyone that managed to catch yesterdays shows enjoyed them as much as I did!  I tried to get in as many demos as I could but still came home with a pile of them undone!

Back to today and another idea what to do with your new Pacific Ocean collection dies.  I know I always say this but a relatively simple card today just using the striped nasturtiums and the Tahiti die.

I stared by cutting a panel of cobalt card using the noble double pierced background dies and added cosmic pearl PVA one every other pierced hole around the outside.  I cut the outline for the Tahiti in this and added a panel behind with the detail suite cut in white.  I then added apiece of acetate and a scrunched up piece of kitchen roll coated in pixie powders behind this.

For the flowers I simply cut the nasturtium dies in velum again coloured with pixie powders attaching a set of each size of flowers with a silver brad in the centre.
