Flower, Lace and Washi Tape

Welcome,
I had not meant to be absent from blogland for quite so long, but my computer, camera card and external hard drive were not talking to each other - they got over their hissy fit this evening, and now I can show you what I have been working on.


I have had this layout on my mind for several days, and this afternoon it was just a case of sorting out which materials I would use to create it.  


The die cut is one I used as a trial when I received some CCD's recently - (Cheap Chinese Dies),
The thread is some glitter machine embroidery thread.  I put three coats of WoS over the die cut to get the sparkle.


I deliberately tore the ends of the washi tape, and layered a narrow lace under the edge of the lower piece.
The sentiment is an old one from Kiwistamping, which was embossed in blue.
The final detail were some flat, blue holographic sequins.


I finished the inside of the card with more washi tape.

  25. I have not seen a flower die like that one before. Guess you would call it contemporary - how lovely. Think I must look out for something similar as it has really struck a chord in me.
    God Bless, Neet x
