I wanted to try a silhouette idea but I didn't want it to be black and then I spotted the teal pearlised card in my stash and I was away.The card blank I choose was black and measured 7" x 7". I cut a pale turquoise mat and then a smaller black mat. I took some white pearled card and cut it to size and then inked the edges with a dark blue distress ink. Then it was very exciting because I was able to use the Sue Wilson A4 embossing folder Illusion on the mat I had just inked. It is exciting because I haven't had my grand Caliber very long and ding A4 embossing is still a novelty to me. I am lucky enough to have some of the Sue Wilson Italian collection cutting dies and I used one from the frame set to cut out some turquoise card. I used a tonic circle die to cut a very thin mat. This way the little hearts stood out (I kept the little hearts that came form the waste and they came in very useful).I used a smaller tonic circle die to cut some more white card that was them embossed with a smaller embossing folder. I cut the Spellbinder flower box die and the sentiment out of the teal card that started this journey. Once everything was assembled I took some flat backed pearls and coloured them with Promarkers before sticking them with some stronger glue in the corners.
I am very pleased with the outcome. Thank you for stopping by.
