Good morning guys and gals. Hope you are all well.
Still been nippy here. Hope that Davey's thermals aren't in the wash basket when he gets home this morning as he will need them after a couple of weeks in the Sun.
Thank you all for your wonderful and kind comments on my recent samples. As you know, I love my florals so I have really enjoyed using the flower dies.
Now, on this wooden heart (cue Elvis) I tried something different. My lovely friend PJ's Christmas present to me was an air dry clay set so I thought I'd try it on the orchid die.
I did it by pushing the clay into the die (cutting edge up) and then using a clay roller to flatten it off. You then peel off the excess and gently pop the flower out.
I had already cut out card versions and shaped them. I then placed the matching clay pieces onto the shaped card to dry. This meant that they dried in that shape.

Again, I used clear embossing powder to gloss up my hand cut leaves and stem.
I loved trying this new medium and will be using it again very soon so thanks PJ.
I will be using the orchid die at my next workshop at Crafty Corner next week.
Time to head for bed now (I'm scheduling).
Have a happy Tuesday. Hoping to have a catch up with Nesta over a taco lunch.
