Good morning lads and lasses. Hope all is well with you and yours?
I haven't had a good week and this past few couple of days have been decidedly bad. I don't think I had shaken off the virus and it has had its wicked way with me again.
Anyhoo, regarding the post title, sadly I'm not on a beach in the Indian Ocean, I've just made a few samples to help John out for his One Day Special shows on Hochanda, starting tonight at 8pm and continuing on Wednesday at 9am,12, 4 and 7pm.
Now, the Mauritius is a very pretty die set and I had fun using it.
Bright white and cobalt Foundation card
Sue Wilson Mauritius die set
John Lockwood Fern Frames Elements stamps
I thought about how I could use the main die differently and came up with the idea of using it to go around the edge of a piece of card so it almost looks like the die cut is inside out (if that makes sense lol?) I then used the next die in to cut the indented areas around the edge (again, if that makes sense lol?)
I should have taken a photo at the prep stage but I'm happy to do that and post next time if I have confused you all lol!!!
I hope that you all get to see John's shows as I'm sure that he has some treats and techniques in store.
I have enjoyed having a reason to get in the craft room and play and take my mind off some of the rougher bits of the last few days.
I'm trying to get round to visiting everyone's blogs but please forgive me if I fall behind again at the moment.
Thank you for visiting and I'll show the rest of my samples over the coming days.
Take care all.
