Frame & Cut


Hi ladies, today I want to use both the frame and the cut to make two cards.

Frame
1. Blend a mat with Distress Inkpad Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain and cut it with a frame die
2. Glue the frame on the card with Ranger Triangular Collage Glue Stick on the white card
3. Stamp a flower of Floral Notes Rubber Stamp sheet  in the frame with Versamark - Watermark 
    Stamp Pad and emboss with WOW  Embossing Powder Metallic Gold Sparkle
4. Darken the edges of the white card with Distress Inkpad Brushed Corduroy  and put a golden
    ribbon as decoration

Cut
1.  Use the cut of point 1 of the Card Frame
2.  Stamp on it a flower of Floral Notes Rubber Stamp sheet with Versamark - Watermark 
     Stamp Pad and emboss with white Embossing Powder
3.  Glue the cut with Ranger Triangular Collage Glue Stick  on the white card
4.  Darken the edges of the white card with Distress Inkpad Brushed Corduroy  and put a golden
    ribbon as decoration



As you can see the result is quite different, even though  my idea was to do two similar cards to use as            " Thank You"  cards.

In the meantime I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Peacock canvas 20x20 cm

It's time again for a canvas and I had a lot of fun in painting this 20x20 cm.  
All is coloured all with acrylic, the Peacock and the small flowers are a cut of Chocolate Baroque Stamp Tangled Peacock, while the waterlily of Serenity Rubber sheet is stamped on the canvas. Some Stickles gold gives more light to the canvas.
