How is your week going? It has been rather wet here though I have managed to get the holiday washing done. We did have a lovely time away and I really enjoyed the book I took away with me (Paper Hearts and Summer Kisses by Carole Matthews) it is a very good read.
Before we went away I had a play with the Butterfly die from the Stained Glass collection by Creative Expressions. When we returned from holiday I made a card with the results of my experiments.
When you use Pixie Powders and Brushos there is always a lot of ink left over. As many of you do, I hate waste so the background piece is made with soaking up the link with a piece of water colour card. It has a lovely sheen that doesn't show in the photo.
For the background for the die I used Pixie Powders and Brushos to get the colour. Then the piece was covered with some double sided sticky sheet. The black die cut was placed on top. Then I cut the die in various colours and placed pieces into the die cut. It is a great way to use up scraps of paper. Once I was happy the remaining sticky was covered with Micro Beads. The frame was cut with the Double Pierced Rectangle dies by Creative Expressions.
This die came free with a magazine, I can't remember which, it has been very useful.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
