Well how pleased was I when I checked T!ms blog this morning and discovered that his tag today featured the rosette die that I made the decision to buy this week LOL
Believe it or not it only arrived yesterday morning :D if anybodyis after one they are still available at Country View crafts at a fab price and free P+P!!! Excellent service too - I only ordered it on Monday night!!!
How amused was I when I couldn't find the cutting mats I have to go with the extended dies???? NOT!!! I have hte base plate but where are the mats? who knows!!!
I ended up using my normal bigz die one and the little ones that go in the sidekick LOL - bit tricky but it worked!!
Now that rosette isn't as easy as it looks - I think mine was cut too deep on the folds as it snapped :$
Soooo repeat of the big shot performance and I managed the secon time LOL
I used different paper though - it was TH from teh seasonal pad but the one in blues an reds.
My tag was randomly stamped with various stamps and then coloured with broken china and whitamica spray - it looked too blue so I did a second wash of frayed burlap and the white mica.
I distressed the edges and then added some Fired brick highlights - repeated this on my rosette and gave it a quick spritz :D
I didn't have the letter die and couldn't decide on letters so in the end I inked some chipboard letters with the broken china, mica misted and then glossy accented.
Added fibres, some organza and a few of my fave buttons :D
added a button and crystal on a safety pin to the fibres and some distress stickles to finish off.
I decided to dry my stickles with my heatgun and remembered while it was drying that organza melted with them - so gave that a quick blast too :D
I think this is my second fave so far :D
P.S Happy 50th Birthday Coronation Street :D
