Hello there Blogging friends and also a warm welcome to my new followers. This week for my DT at Cheery Lynn Designs I combined our challenge of red, white and blue into my card.
I matted and layered my seaside themed papers using the stacker dies, to make them look like a picture frame with a little scene inside. I used the new Old Barn Board die which comes with the words, log and fishing line. The log was cut out in Kraft paper and I distressed the edges, I placed a few foam pads in the middle and glue at the edges this added more dimension to my card. My stamped image had a fishing line on it, which I cut off. You will see the extended bit on my fishing line is now made using my die, don’t you just love the little hook on the end of this. I pressed the hook into my embossing ink and double embossed using silver embossing powder and threaded a few beads through it to give a 3D look of a float on the line.
My birds are from the birdbath set and my little Starfish was made using the leaves from the miniature rose die.
I am off to sunny Majorca for a week, my daughter works in the Airline Industry so nice cheap flights, we couldn’t say no to, so my post next week will be a scheduled one. Look forward to catching up with all your blogs when I get back.
