Die Crazy

The Challenge at Simon Says Stamp this time is entitled Die Crazy. I think that crafting has gone a little die crazy over the last few years, with so many companies and so many wonderful dies available, I must say that die cutting is one of my favourite techniques!
Here is a Sympathy card using a Crafter's Companion sentiment and a Simon Says Stamp stitched square and rectangle.
The coloured panel was made using the alcohol ink marbling technique, where alcohol inks are added to a container of water and the porous card dropped into it!
The Happy Little Stampers butterfly, embossed with WOW Sparkling Snow powder was stamped onto vellum and cut out.
I made two sympathy cards yesterday, the first being for the son of Sir David Willcocks who died yesterday aged 95. He was a formidable force in the music world and choral music in particular. He was choirmaster at King's College Cambridge for many years and his work and influence will long be remembered. RIP.
