I hope your Saturday has gone well .. .. don't you just love the start of a weekend!!!
I have taken time to have a quick play with a new technique today.
When I am sitting cutting ribbons to length, turning the handle on my cuttlebug over, and over and over again and tying ribbons and bows during the week I usually have my laptop on to teach myself new things. So much I need to learn!!
Here is what I wanted to try from what I found this week:
Backing Paper: An old envelope stitched repeatedly
Backing Paper for Flower: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Sizzix Dies: "656079" Flower Layers #5 and "656076" Branch with Leaves (but I pruned it)
Nestabilities: Labels Four
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Hounds Tooth
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
X-Cut Punch: Butterfly
My Trust Sewing Machine
White Gel Pen
Brad, Gems and Ribbon from the Stash Box
The technique that was new to me is the effect on the nestie shape.
If you fancy looking at what I did you can find the instructions on the link below.
but beware .. .. the lovely lady in the video has done a mountain of projects for you to look at!!
I don't think I made a very good choice of embossing folder and my wax paper was a crumpled scrap end from the olden days when I used to make cakes (probably a whole 15 years old) .. .. but all in all the finished result isn't so bad for a first attempt.
New wax paper needs to go on the shopping list and then I shall try again .. .. but using a different embossing folder and more delicate inks colours. I love trying new things.
Have an enjoyable evening everyone and a great Sunday.
