Hi, I'm squeezing in another card today as I'll be heading to my sister's place in Brissie tomorrow. I doubt we'll get any cards made LOL!!
Last time I was there I did a few die cuts and did some stamping from her stash.
The challenge at Cuttlebug Mania is to make your own flowers for your project, by hand or using a manual die cutting machine. I thought I'd drag out these die cuts as I think they look like a flower.
I sponged them with memento and distress ink. (There are 2 glued together). I glued some shimmer bazzil to the flower and fussy cut it. If I had the die I would've re-inserted the cut outs!
It was quite a job. I remember watching a British vintage type renovation show on TV not long ago. The renovators were having a sewing lesson, and while she was stitching the instructor commented that she had a lovely sewing face!! I think my eyes were screwed up and my tongue was hanging out, not a pretty fussy cutting face LOL!
The die is Memory Box Lavalier circle, and the embossing folder is Couture Creations Hyper Magical. The sentiment is from Penny Black Social Butterfly set, stamped in Versafine and clear embossed. I shaped some 1/8 punched circles to put around the bling centre.
I was also inspired by 2 other challenges. At Addicted to Stamps & More, there's a colour challenge.'
I followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
Thanks for visiting :)
