Beautiful Bella

Beautiful Bella!!

Todays card is made with the new Frames and Tags collection - Bella. 
The card is a 6"base.
I have then used the Double stitched Octagons to cut out one in white and then the next size down in Lustre card - Rosa

With the same Rosa card, I have used the main and second die from Bella to cut two shapes, cut these in half and placed them behind the white octagon

Using white card, the same dies were used to cut out another Bella for the centre shape. I used adhesive pearls to embellish around the edges too

One of my most favourite new dies is the Passionflower, I think you will be seeing a lot more of this flower
there are 23 dies in just the one packet! Real value for money in any currency! 

In this card, I have cut one base out of white card with double sided adhesive attached so that I could get an even coverage once dipped into Frosty Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I have then cut the passionflower from Rosa card, gently teased the petals slightly for a little dimension and then added a Pearl and Rhinestone cluster to the centre.

Making Backgrounds with Gel Media Plate

Do you believe in fairies? What a wonderful world it would be to have these little creatures at the bottom of your garden! Todays card is made with Yvonne Creations Rectangle Autumn Frame and Sue Wilsons Fillables Collection Fairy Scene. 

I have simply cut the frame out in black card and cut two fairy scenes in black too. I have then snipped the fairy out of the scene and then with one of the fairies just used her wings. I placed the cut wings BEHIND the main fairy so you cant see the join.

Other dies used in this card are the Presscuts Notched Rectangles for the base card and JND Mini tags for the sentiments.
The background technique is using the Izink pigment inks and the large Gel Media plate. I have done a 5 minute video for you to show you how easy this technique is
