Verdigris Love for Leonie Pujol

Hello lovely peeps, and a very warm welcome to my new followers.

I have one more sample using Leonie's Mixed Media dies to show you before the launch of her new dies tomorrow evening on Hochanda.

Did you want another sneaky peek? What am I saying, of course you do, lol.

This one is using the 'All the Love' die, which I cut from sturdy white card. I covered a 6"x6" card blank with a K&Co paper and used the die again to cut an aperture. I dabbed tiny dots of cosmic shimmer glue around the edge of the white die-cut to hold it in place.

The inside of the card was lined with a yellow First Edition paper and I stapled co-ordinating ribbons in the top right hand corner of the card front - I used buttons to cover the staples.

For the topper I poured some Verdigris embossing powder onto a heat-proof craft sheet and heated it from underneath with a heat gun until it had melted into a puddle. I inked up one of the sentiments from a previous stamp set (Off She Flew) with black ink and stamped into the puddle, leaving it there until it had set.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Crafty Friends Challenge #37 Favourite Embellishment (buttons)
That's Crafty! Challenge Blog Zesty Zing
613 Avenue Create  #188 Anything Goes
As You Like It Challenge Favourite papers  (& why) - My favourite papers are by K&Co, the colours and patterns are gorgeous. As I only have one or two sheets of each they don't get an outing very often because I don't want to use them up :D  My second favourites are Trimcraft/First Edition - they are lovely quality and you get a great mix of double sided/textured/foiled etc. Also you get three of each design in a pad so I don't have to be so frugal with them. 

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow at 8pm
