See a Silhouette From My Heart. Well that was unexpected! I woke up this morning happily thinking that everything was in place for today’s post and video. It was not until I realised that I had not received the usual notification email (yes, I subscribe to my own Website!) that I even knew there was nothing posted. Even worse, although I had recorded the video and taken the photos, that is all I had done. No uploading, no photo editing and certainly no post written! So here I am about 3 hours later than usual with today’s project.
I wanted to make something bright and ‘different’, so I thought I would pull out some of my From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. Although I used quite a lot earlier in the year, I have quite a few sheets of this left, but happily many of them can be used for non Love/Valentine projects. I selected my absolute favourite design, Real Red foil with a dot pattern. This is a very bold design, so whatever I designed needed to be able to work against this. The See a Silhouette Bundle instantly sprung to mind. Bold, block designs would be the perfect addition to the paper.
With some trepidation I decided to try heat embossing the girl on the swing straight onto the paper. It worked! I used the Shimmer Black powder so it was not too ‘black’ and this worked well. Adding the tree and ‘adventure’ in Black Foil also worked well. Building up the word with 4 layers of Basic Black card also die cut makes the word stand out well. Just what I was hoping for. The video includes some hints and tips about how to multi layer your dies.
The final addition was some of the Peaceful Poppies Sequins scattered over the card. I chose gold and clear, adding a few of these with TomBow adhesive. It was then just a case of layering the paper onto some Flirty Flamingo card and then popping that up before adding it to a Basic Black Card Base.
