Experimenting with Cuttlebug!
I don't know if the picture shows up the details very well, but I've been having an experiment with my Cuttlebug folders!
I put a piece of waxed paper through my textile (I think that is what it's called) embossing folder and then ironed it onto a piece of green card, protecting the iron with another sheet of paper. I then spritzed it with 2 colours of Perfect Pearls, gold and antique blue. I really rather like the effect and had fun doing it, although I feel that the card lacks something in the composition.
The flower was made with a Woodware embossing punch from some old photocopied manuscript and distressed with Tim Holz Old Paper distressing ink. The stamens are from a Splat punch. The leaves are Cuttlebug and the swirls, Quickutz.
Maybe if you click on the image and zoom in you may see some of the detail!
I would be interested to hear what you think!
