I made some of the Mehndi Flowers and glittered them, then cut them out with the matching dies.
Just need to be layered up, then I'll do a blog post on them.
While I was at it, I used up a load of leftover paste from another technique to make some more that I intend to do the Hot Foil laminator technique with.
They'll be die cut & layered then too. One or two may be done 'as is' , as the colours came out too nicely to cover!
I also sat and trimmed down those unmounted stamps from the grab bag. I like to have mine as close trimmed as possible, although I admit that now I have a Stamping Platform, it's no longer so critical, as any ink around the edges of a stamp no longer transfer. That's been one huge bonus with it.
Now here's a thing. I don't know it's proper name, but I'm sure LLJ and Annie (Wipso) will be able to tell us. I do know it's used for transferring pattern markings to fabric. I spotted it in my sewing box yesterday, and wondered if it would 'cut' into card, and yes it does. So you can get the 'stitched' look around pieces of card, although they are more dot like than the little slits of a die, but still decorative.
I shall do my best to visit as many people as possible, but it's going to depend on Internet access and reliability. I forgot to mention last week we are off on our holidays today, we're going to Gran Canaria for a week, so probably by the time most of you see this, we'll be up in the air! Funny bit, the plane we are flying on is the same type the engine exploded on in the US last week! Luckily, we have prebooked seats at the front, so we're well away from the wing area!
So that's it from me, just have a little last minute packing to finish this afternoon (Tuesday), and we will be heading off to see if we can contribute to a cocktail shortage in Spain, lol. Link yourselves up via Julia at The Stamping Ground, who it appears is also on her holibobs this week!
