|1. I took the * Pre-order Sizzix Thinlets Mixed Media #2 Die set - used the swirl from this set, and die cut a scrap of cardstock from cereal box, hey presto, disposable stencil!! 👍|
|3. Glue used was the Cosmic shimmer flitter glue. Very tacky. |
Leave for 20 to 30 mins to set, otherwise flakes don't adhere properly.
|4. Used more Silver than earlier card, just a little of Egyptian Gold Glitter Flakes. Smoothed it off well, with fingers or brush.|
|5. With ink duster added the soft shading with Distress Ink Chipped
Sapphire ink pad. Oh, this is such a gorgeous colour (**Distress Ink -
Available from Bec upon request).|
I wanted to highlight the swirl so used water based ink rather than dye ink.
|Used *Pre-order Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly Die, and the inside greeting of *Pre-order Sue Wilson Just For You Ornate Oval Die.|
|6. Cut both out ... double layering the greeting, and decided to colour the DP with the DI Chipped Sapphire it nice deep contrast.|
|7. Die cut the sheet with *Pre-order Spellbinder Pierced Rectangles. Truly Bec has the best prices around.. this versatile rectangle set is so unbelievably priced!!! check it out!!! Finished card, added some bling to butterfly but just let the swirl
show under the butterfly love dit so much didn't want to cover it up.|
I love this card, has a different look to my earlier neutral shaded card Over here! but shall be doing this again. I do love the effect. .. and minimal cleaning up with disposable home made tools.
Okay, so a pineapple update! the image of smallest baby was taken on 22nd March, three weeks ago. Next on right, was taken a week ago. As you can see we have more than one baby on the way, the first one was first take here - mid December 2016. I think this smaller baby is going to be much bigger as it started as huge for a baby, due to the mammoth rainfall we've had I am sure.
|To see a Pineapple growing from start to end see this post here. Both these new growths are from pineapple which were grown on the mother plant in background of last shot. Each successive top was replanted so have wee patch now!|
