How is your week going? Both me and my husband still have our coughs. I went to Christchurch yesterday with my friend to see the gallery where our cards are on display. On the way there we popped into the Emerald Crafts shop in Lyndhurst, it is stuffed to the rafters with crafty loveliness. I did buy a few bits it would have been rude not too. I also was able to have a look round Christchurch which was nice. It was a long day it did make a nice change.
I have had a quieter day today. I did send a few cards to some people who are poorly. When I got home I decided to have a play with a die that I hadn't used before the Stained Glass Poinsettia die from Creative Expressions.
I made the background for the die with Distress Oxides on watercolour paper.
I cut the die in black with a large border. I put some double sided sticky sheet onto the Distress Oxides background and I stuck the die-cut to it. Then I cut the die in red and green. I used the pieces from these die-cuts to fill in parts of the stained glass image. Once I was happy I poured microbeads over the exposed sticky sheet. I did forget to cut some yellow card for the centres of the poinsettias.
I found this sentiment in my stash.
I am going to have another try with this die. I might try acetate and glitter.
I would like to enter the November Challenge at Beccy's Challenges.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
