Just a quick message to all those wonderful Bloggers and followers who have asked about my stamp range. The too talented Julia Watts has opened an online shop and is stocking them as well as a small stock of the Daisy Corner set form my first designs. Julia is offering 10% off until the 4th May so give her a visit by clicking HERE.
I have called this card and post Twisted Lilac because I have used Sue's wonderful weaving dies however when framing the piece to make the card I have twisted the design so that the weave goes diagonally and not straight.
I stared by die cutting 2 each of the classic and striped weaving dies 2 classic in white and 2 striped in lilac foundation card. IO then wove them together using the small strips from the striped set stuck over the individual pieces form the classic die. This gives a different look and also allows you to make a different pattern. I have been playing with these dies and have found that by altering the colours you can make paper versions of different fabrics (i am working on a Tartan for reveal next week I hope!)
Next I added this frame of the woven pattern twisting the pattern so that I runs diagonally cutting off the excess around the edges. I then simply added a couple of mats and layers of the coconut white and lilac to frame this.
It make the sentiment panel I simply used the middle die from the pierced flags die set which doesn't have a cutting line of the straight edge and turned to die to cut a double ended flag. I added some of the new CE self adhesive pearl strips in white however i cut between the 2 lines on the strip and added one strip to each side. I then die cut the best wishes die in lilac card onto which I had added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet and sugared the finished cut with Iced snow. To finish the card I added a piece of the lilac embossed with the CE A4 embossing folder fine finials onto which I rubbed enchanted gold gilding wax. I then, as always, added a few layers of the same colours to frame the piece and finish the card.
