Well thank you so much all for the lovely comments from yesterday , I am so pleased you all really enjoyed my little canvas. I am going to do a large size one I think and it will be part of my 200 people subscribing so look out for that won't you all ad you will get to have a bit of artwork from little ole me on your wall to keeps and look at and even chat to if you want to haha.
Right without further Ado as they say back to today's project using Our lovely Sues stamps and dies from the stamps to dies for range and of course Sue's own die ranges The festive collection and the Californian collection.
See what you think.
Ok so I started with some soft gold card stock and I rounded off the edges and took the largest die from the Californian collection - Decorative frames and cut out an aperture, I saved the inside mat to go on another card maybe for next week who knows , but as another idea it is the perfect shape for a label on its side to go round a bottle and write something special on it to a loved one or have a candle in the top of the bottle with the hot wax dripping down the label making patterns etc, (romantic old fool tonight aren't I)haha.
I then added foam to the back and built it up a little so it stood just a tiny bit away from the card underneath, I chose red to go with the traditional Christmas gold and laid the gold piece on top just so I could see to stamp onto the red card with Perfect medium and emboss it with Ivory powder which suited it very well I thought.
Have any of you lovely blogglies started your Christmas cards yet ? I never do them til the last minute but as this was for the DT piece I at least got a little practise in .
I've have had a couple of requests to put up the dates of the next shows and as you
know they can sometimes be cancelled and changed around by Ideal world but as it stands I have a couple of shows on the 8th of October and again on the 20th October. So I am starting the prep now for the first one and really enjoying getting it all together for you to see.
I hope you like this one and if you feel like popping over to the Creative expressions blog to leave me a comment on there too I would be really grateful, or on facebook of course if you have me added.
Have a lovely Thursday and I will see you soon.
