I decided to use the Dutch Doobadoo "small circles" mask as it is currently my "fav" ... not sure why but I think it's the pattern that calls to me! Next month, I know I will have another new fav ... hee, hee, hee ... but until then ...
Using my Perfect Medium pad, I covered the stencil and then placed a further piece of card on top. Next, I ran this card/sencil sandwich through my big shot, so one piece of card embossed and the other picked up the residual Perfect Medium. The embossed card, I smoothered in gold embossing powder (and heated) and the other card piece, I used my Soft Gold metallic pan pastel, buffing afterwards; this is the piece I will use for this project.
Now the real problem ... which die to use. I have a few (not oodles and oodles) but just couldn't decide how I wanted to proceed. Finally, out of desperation as I was running out of time, I decided to use my Spellbinders Classic Squares and using the smallest die, cut mosaic tiles from my backing card. These in turn I layered on to a scalloped card base.
I also used the same die set to create a frame but instead of centering the inner die, I placed it lower down on one edge. This was deliberate I promise ... definitely .... and I did this so that I could make sure that my Luna digi image (from Polka Doodles) was not covered too much by the frame. I them embossed the frame using the same "small circles" mask I used on my back ground.
Luna has been coloured with Prisma Pencils and highlighted/dotted with white GraphIt Shaker pen. I have added some die cut flowers from Tattered Lace using the Dutch Doobadoo laser art buttons for their centres.The setiment is from Work and Play 2 CD. As a final touch, I have added some Dutch Doobadoo laser art butterflies.
Still in Wales and off to the beach today (regardless of the weather) but can definitely confirm, I will not be dipping my toes in the sea!
