Workshop Aug 8th 15

Here's my post for today, yes sorry it is yet another that l made at my workshop, by the way it is at "Sunrise Crafts", really enjoy the day out each time....
The main card is made from both hints of silver and hints of gold Centura card, the different shades go so lovely with each other. The die used for this is the Spellbinders Labels 47, and so easy to use so differently. The centre piece is curved and just glued on the side edges, this giving a bowed effect.
The flowers were made also from using a die and inked with distressed ink and shaped into the finished effect and also leaves to compliment. Finished off by adding the pearls to the centres of the flowers, and the ribbon down the left side, which was tied into a knot rather than a bow.
I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my posts, look forward to reading your comments...thank You

Workshop card 8.8.15

Hi, Here goes my post for today....
This was one of the projects at my recent visit to my workshop....
The background was made by placing colour blocks on the base card, and when dry ran through an embossing folder, then used small amount of gilding waxes to highlight the design. This was then layered onto some black card and then onto the base 8 x 8 square card. The black topper was cut using a die and placed central. For the topper starting with a piece of thick card 4inches by 4inches.
Then texture paste was spread onto it and also some patches of blue paste, this was then heated with my heat tool until it started to bubble, whilst still heating it l used my other hand to prepare my stamp....inking it ready to place straight into the hot paste....left it in place until it had cooled down and then lifted it off. I was very pleased with the finished result, quite different from the norm..
Thank you for stopping by, please leave me your comments...
