That song keeps playing through my head 'My Eyes Adore You' Frankie Valli. Elysha's Top Most Favourite Movie of all time. She watches it every day and when we drive down to visit mum & dad or Jessie & Keegan or actually anywhere that the drive will take more than 20 minutes she brings the CD to the car and sits there waiting for me to say 'ok' then we play it extremely loud and sing along with our tone deaf voices and Elysha tells me I sing wonful (wonderful) and I tell her the same cause thats what you do to make people happy. Lucky we got copies of the words so we can sing along without too many mistakes.
Okay thats todays trivia. Feeling a bit better, as you should be able to see with the straighter photos. Headache is constant but its not a migraine so easier to ignore.
I decided to make this creation for the Paper Smooches April Challenge, using their flower
die (love it) and sentiments (love them) and this brilliant kraft, gold foiled cardstock. From a local shop a pad of all these amazing foil covered papers that I have been dying to use.
Once complete and I take photos and edit, add to my blog then I re read the notes I had taken on the challenge. I used the wrong image/sentiment. Rainbow colours was an option but the Challenge was
for Showers - Baby/Wedding. Looks like I need to think of a different Challenge, bugger. Thought I was so clever.
I have die cut this flower twice, once from white card stock and once from a piece of Acetate that I have added lots of Alcohol Ink colours too. I added that wonderful double sided tape I told you before to the Acetate and it works perfectly. Sticks the pieces in and doesn't show up behind the Acetate.
The colours are so translucent that you can see the gold foil behind the flower.
To finish it off I have die cut the sentiment three times, layered then glued in place and a few
clear gems and its done.
In reference to the Acetate sheet I tend to do those as A4 (Letter size) and have 2 or 3 and just leave on the dinning table for a day or two (with Protector sheet under them).
Each time I walk past I drip, splot, drop and air can blow or straw blow or add squirts of Blender solution to move it around a bit and reactivate an area. My usual is two sheets of multi colours with gold and one of blues & purples with silver. That way I end up with lots to play with later. Every little bit is used.
This makes for great backgrounds. One thing I did find was that I needed to run the die cut flower twice through with the acetate to get a clean cut.
These photos don't show it up as wonderful as I reckon it is IRL but not too bad.
Optional Twist - anything Spring
I think my card meets the twist.
The Acetate used was a snippet and I had to cheat
and use some extra small recut snippets for pieces
that jumped off the table and hid and needed to be
replaced :) The sentiment was also cut from white
card stock snippets.
Im not sure on this one, is the background too busy
to be considered CAS - anyway let me know if not
andI can remove.
Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
