I hope your week is going well.
Thank goodness there is not another Friday 13th this week!!
I couldn't believe it, last Friday, when my EBosser died on me.
It had sometimes stopped, for no apparent reason before.
I just turned it off and on again and it worked. Not this time!!
Fortunately, I only had a tag die in it and
it was near enough to the front of the plates,
that I was able to pull it out. It was a brand new plate too!!
Guess what the theme is for our challenge,
at Crafting For All Seasons this fortnight?!!
Have you got it?.......
Dies and/Or Punches!!!
Just what I needed!!
I was just lucky that I hadn't sold my Joy Trouvaille machine!
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Tiffany Doodles.
The generous prize is 3 Digi images.
You can see all the fabulous Tiffany Doodles here.
The selection of stamps is amazing. You will have a hard job choosing your 3.
I chose to use this gorgeous flower called Petals Up.
I printed the image onto 300gsm Langton Watercolour paper.
I coloured it with Distress Inks.
I created the background with a mask and a mask over the image.
I used Distress inks through the mask.
I used Paul's, at Go Create dies, Frilly 8, to cut both the flower and blue mat.
The sentiment is a Spellbinders Die D-Lites and the decorative cut out,
is a Sue Wilson Die.
I then used a corner punch to round off the corners of the 7" square card.
Oops! I nearly forgot the butterfly, which is a Sizzix Die!
It nearly didn't make it onto my card. It was sitting on my desk, when I blew a bit of fluff off my card. The butterfly took off and landed in my pot of water I was using for painting my flower!!
A quick pat with kitchen roll and a blast of heat gun and it was rescued!
I think I have met the brief for this challenge. Plenty of dies and a punch!
So let's see what you make for us to drool over!
