Well I travel home tomorrow just In time for some workshops in Pickwell farm on Saturday! Its Wednesday which means its time for my Design Team creation for the CE design team. Once again I am showing something different that can be made with the same die set, its the Lisbon set and today I have teamed it again with the cobalt yardstick however I have used the Stamp to Die for that matches this die called Floribunda which has a hand drawn image of a spray of peonies. I thought it would look stunning embossed with true white detail embossing powder form Cosmic Shimmer so that's exactly what I have done!
I stamped the image three times using perfect medium on cobalt card them embossed each one. I then cut out the flowers from 2 of the stamped images and made some of the flowers 3 layers go decoupage so that they appear to be 3D!
To make the remainder of the card I used the largest die form the Lisbon set and cut an aperture in the centre of a piece of coconut white foundation card. I then ran this through the A4 bed of roses embossing folder from CE and highlighted the debased side using summer blue gilding wax which i polished off using a dry wet wipe.
At my demo a couple of weeks ago I showed people the different between an embossed panel that had been covered in the gilding wax one that had been polished and one not. It really does make a difference and polishing off the excess wax will make a big difference and add a brilliant shine.
I finished the card with a few layers of blue and the white and added a messy bow using white and heather seem binding. finishing it with dark blue dazzler.
