I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead. We had a lovely day on Saturday in the afternoon we went to Hampshire Open Studios at Great Abshot Barn in Titchfield Common. There are several artists exhibiting including a close friend, we actually bought one of her batiks. I will show you when we get it she is a very talented artist. The exhibition is well worth a visit the location is lovely there is tea and cake available and you can look round the beautiful garden as well. From there we went to Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth and saw the brilliant film Baby Driver which we followed with a nice meal in Cafe Rouge. On Sunday we took my parents out for a meal.
Before we went on holiday (which seems a long time ago now) I made up four of the Butterfly Stained Glass die from Creative Expressions. I decided to use the third one to make a square card.
This is what I came up with.. I used patterned paper and the Bed of Roses Embossing folder also from Creative Expressions.
Behind the die is a Pixie powder background that was covered with a double sided sticky sheet. I cut the die in black and stuck to the sticky sheet. Then I cut the die in many colours to piece into the die (it is a great way to use up scraps of paper and card). The remaining sticky was covered with Micro Beads. Finally it was cut out with one of my Double Pierced rectangle dies.
As there wasn't much room for a sentiment I used my Crafter's Companion die.
I have one more die cut to use I am sure I will use that soon. At the moment I am on a mission to tidy my craft stash I am just doing it a bit at a time. It is amazing all the things I am finding that I forgot that I had.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
