Below Pixie Nasturtiums...
Due to the problems with pictures disappearing form my blog I can't be sure if I have shared this card but I don't think so lol
I stared by making a sheet of pixie powdered watercolour card using the Burnt Orange and straw yellow colours. I sprayed water all over the card and took a print off using a piece of bright white card. I used a pice of blue white seam binding to mop up the excess liquid which creates the beautiful shaded ribbon used on the front.
I started by cutting a square of bright white foundation card with the linear elegance edger die. I rotated the die 90' and cut it again repeating the process until I got the square pattern around the edges. Next I cut the edges of this piece using the edge die from the same set. I backed this with the watercolour card show that the patterns and colour shows through the die cuts.
I then cut the outline and detail die ( dos 1 and 2) from the Tahiti die set in bright white and backed it with more of the pixie powdered paper. I cut the die again in reverse with pixie front and white background and rotated it behind the first die cut. If you look carefully you can see this opposing out its more obvious in real life!
I cut the next dies in the set in white, backed with the paper and layered these up with foam tape.
I tied a messy bow using the seam binding I made and added nasturtiums over this cut in the pixie paper and topped with the open petal dies in white adding stamens in the centre. I cut the autumn leaf trio swirls in the pixie pare and added these behind the flowers.
