Sending Warm Hugs

Hello. I’m popping to show you a card made using the colours at the current Color Throwdown challenge:

I wanted to use the Honey Bee Stamps sunflower again – love that die set – and a new Sizzix die received as part of the current Maker Mania #6 that is happening this weekend.

This is my fourth Maker Mania event, and it includes, scrapbooking and layouts – not my thing – but it certainly has many card making hints and tips and techniques – some of which I’ll be exploring. Of course – the event products are fabulous – and this Sizzix die was one of them.

back to the card – I used some Cosmic Shimmer red lustre polish on a white card panel, and after it was dry – very, very quickly – I die cut just one layer of the Sizzix lattice.

I ink smooshed some yellow water-colour inks onto a couple of pieces of Distress Mixed Media Heavystock, and on another I used one of my previously created green ink smooshed panels.

The red lattice was carefully glued to the card base, the flower put together and placed as you see. As the sentiment is in black – I also placed some faceted black gems strategically around the lattice frame. As you know – once I start with gems I have to restrain myself!
