Today I am running Workshops at JGD Crafts in Sutton in Ashfield, I'm really looking forward to seeing the ladies and Janet again!
Today's card was made from me experimenting with waste form the fabulous Izink texture pastes. After making a pink zebra canvas using my large Zebra mask, I was left with a spatula full of pinky texture paste. As the paste is suitable for card as well as fabric wood etc as it is flexible;e i wondered if it would spread onto card and then, once dry, be able to be die cut. Thats exactly what I did and I found that once dry I had a flexible and pearlised piece of paper which also die cut, bonus! I then used the piece to cut all the poinsettias on this card.
The great thing about these is that the texture paste is fully flexible meaning I was able to shape the flowers without them cracking, it helped me to understand why these work so well on fabric!
I embossed a piece of the Christmas red lustre print card from Crafts Too and sanded the raised are back to show the white core of the card. I love this about the lustre print ( I have some fab new packs coming in November) as it can be used in so many different ways.
I added a stamped sentiment and a few layers to finish the card. This one is great for posting as the flowers pop back even if squashed!
