Silver Moon Ocean...
I thought I would share another card made using the Atlantic ocean background as I love this die and made so many samples using it!
I stared this card by covering a sheet of double sided adhesive with silver moon gilding flakes. I then cut all the dies in the Atlantic ocean set into this separately. so I cut the first die, then cut the central die with the outline and the final die again with the outline.
Next I backed the first piece with Wisteria card ( doesn't it look brighter when teamed with white and silver) I then added the spring foliage die cut in white around all four sides of the central square and mounted this with foam in the centre. I cut the flowers from the Spring Foliage set in more of the gilding flakes which I shaped and added a crystal in the centre.
I backed the final die cut with coconut white and rotated this before foam mounting this in the centre. I added a frame made with the noble double pierced squares dies and set B in white and wisteria and traced the outline with crystal strips ( these come as a double but I like to cut them into single strips)
Finally a pearl and crystal embellishment with a messy bow made with ribbon form my stash ( Ive got to use more ribbon I collect far too much!)
I have updated the demo and workshop list at the right hand of the blog so if you want to see where I will be in March its all there! Also I am running some workshops at CE Towers in Kettering starting in May for more details see the Creative Expressions Facebook page.
