LET LOVE GROW
Good morning crafty friends....
A little decoupage today! On a spur of the moment I bought Tattered Lace's monthly magazine. The freebie lily die looked very interesting. Unfortunately once die cut I'm not greatly impressed, but, to be fair, it is die cut onto white card (as I always do with a new die or stamp) and whilst I've looked at it several times and done absolutely nothing about it, I'm currently wishing I'd not bothered! The papers included are so very pretty and I fussy cut the lily one and decoupaged it as well as adding a little gold aqua shimmer to the petals. I don't think it shows too well on here though
I used a 6" square white card base, the one that is scalloped all around, but I removed the sides on this one to give me a 5"sq card
I used a sparkled green card as a smaller panel, don't you feel good when you use card/paper from your left over pieces even though it doesn't make a slight impression in the box haha
When I adhered the flower spray I made another two die cuts for the sentiment as well as adding three 'prickly pear' coloured sequins
The remaining card from the oval sentiment was used on the inside of the card and the very last piece of this card I die cut three butterflies, using one of the card front and two on the envelope
This week's freebie is a pretty embossing folder by Couture creations named 'Encaustic:
