Dragonfly Music card and box
You may recognise this as the demo I almost finished! The images are embossed with Moonglow Midnight Gold Obsidian two-tone embossing powder which is a gold/black combination. The gold is an antique shade, I like using this powder as you get a good impression with it being black but have the soft gold too. Best of both worlds!
The card is plain at the moment, I may add some embellishment or may just simply add the right wording when it is needed!
The shrink ribbon... ie organza ribbon heated with a heat gun to make it curl, it takes on a different texture and appears wired. It wasn't until afterwards that I wondered if they thought I was trying to set fire to it. So, I'd better say, be very careful if you try this at home and if you have a heat gun that throws out a lot of heat, then keep it well above ribbon. Health and safety lecture over:) Just be careful!!!
I have scheduled this post and hope it works OK as I am down at Create and Craft filming a live show.
I am filming this show on behalf of Craft Creations, if you enjoy making decoupage cards and would like any of the products they will also be available from them at http://www.craftcreations.com/.
Although it is something completely different for me, I've actually really enjoyed making all the sample cards for the show. I am on at noon on Sky 671 or Freeview 36 if you are able to watch the show. It should be repeated a couple of times and I will post details of the repeats as soon as I know them, so I'll probably post again later when I get home.
