Now that's quite a few dies and projects - here's to the next 50 or more!
This month's Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine features a couple of
projects of mine in the Q and A section.
One of the questions: Can you use die-cut shapes as stencils?
Answer: Most definitely!
I used Botanical Swirls - one of the expandable pattern dies to create a mask/stencil.
I placed it onto a white piece of card and spritzed with a mister.
Wait until it dries before you remove the stencil...I am always impatient at this point!
I then used this as a background to a simple card featuring
Now for something completely different... do you watch Sherlock?
If you do and caught the last episode there was a lengthy scene involving
a lift in a rather swanky office block.
Well, that was filmed at the office where I work in London, St Botolphs.
and the lift area...
They actually did the filming last August - you can tell because it isn't raining!
The building is incredibly modern and a far cry from my other workplace....
I know which I prefer!
Have a lovely weekend dear friends.
