Its a nice day here, but I think the cold is coming back soon. Today I am doing laundry and making a card or two. I was fascinated with the cards at CAS Mix Up Challenge - Faux Cloisonne. I have at least one jewelry piece that is Cloisonne so I had to try it out. I am also linking up at Stampin Sensations -February things with wings or tails.
I don't subscribe to any magazines, so I was at a loss. Then the Costco Connection arrived. Flipping through it, I found a charcuterie board and thought the section of grapes might work...
I powdered the page and stamped and cut it out roughly. Then using a piece of double sided tape sheet added a stiff piece of card stock behind it. I stamped with versamark added gold ep and heated it up. Now for me, the magazine paper was very static-y, so in the small spaces the ep was not quite so precise. But I think it looks cool. I fussy cut the dragon fly and finished the card with a center panel on a colored card base. I love this sentiment, that came in a SU set (Flowing Flowers).
Here is a close up of the dragon fly.
So I used a die cut, some stamping and the Faux Cloisonne technique for this card.
If you haven't already give it a try, it was fun.
Thanks so much for visiting.
