Happy Monday I know I said that yesterday!!!,
To answer the questions from yesterday I use archival ink in black for acetate however I have also used stazon in the past. I also got a little confused yesterday as i wrote the post quickly as Mr Next Door was flying in at the last minute!
For tomorrow I have worked up yet another tutorial, this time for die cutting the spellbinders filigree delight die without it cutting the outside edges. I used this technique on my Mothers day card, which my mum loved, click HERE if you missed it. Today's card is the one I made using the resultant die cut piece in blue as you can see the filigree is the only part cut the outside edge is left whole. This technique allows you to make this piece as large as you want.
In this example I have placed a Sue Wilsonesque pierced frame around the die cut however this is foam mounted on top of the die cut piece with a small edge peeping through. I did it this way to showcase the edge and to prove there is no trickery lol!
I mounted the whole piece on a light blue mat and foam mounted this on a few layers of pastel and navy blue.
Next I added flowers which are cut using Spellbinders Cherry blossom die with inked centres and edges which I have shaped using the same technique as I showed in my video flower tutorial, click HERE to see that! I stuck the Flowers on around one corner and overlapped them onto the frame, i added some perfect pearls in the very centres as well as some dots to highlight the filigree delight die cut.
The centre piece is a stack of Spellbinders Gold Ovals with a stamp in my signature Enjoy...
Tune in tomorrow for the tutorial on making the filigree die cut,
