feathered friends

I have been lucky enough to be playing with some of the new spellbinders dies, due out soon at your local shop. This layout features their new Mbossiblities, they are really neat embossing folders with two designs a different one each side, must have been a woman who designed this soooo practical. I have used them on the corners and rubbed over Inka Gold to give it a variety of luminous colour, I have also used the Jeweled Fantasies (peacock Feathers) die to create wonderful wisps of feathers, not that they relate to the little duckling, but they look great.To create the flowers i have cut out organza with Spellbinders Rose creations, surely one of my favourite die sets, and spritzed them with a little glimmer mist, then just heat them with the heat gun, not a lot, just enough to shrink and wrinkle the petals, it gives the flower a tighter rose like look. I love this old photo of my daughter, and a little baby duckling, they both are so cute. Mean while I am very busy with the magazine and was at the papercraft show on the weekend, having fun in my element, craft every where.
