Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends

Today is all about layering...
Many of you already layer up your die cuts, adding foam tape in between for 
dimension but how about layering behind your project?
This is an example, I've placed a die cut behind my tag to give it an
attractive border shape. A layering sandwich if you like...
I've then proceeded to add more layers on the font of the tag. 
And more!  Topped with a butterfly...of course! 
The dies used are Gold Labels Four and Les Papillion Two.
The Ranger tags are available here.
A simple tip/technique today :)

This evening is my first Craft in the Evenings class - Spellbinders Introduction.
Looking forward to spending some early evening time with fellow crafters.

On Saturday, Sara is returning to teach her Silver Clay Charms and Pendant Workshop.
I know the class may appear pricey but you go away having made a wonderful piece
of silver jewellery - the ladies last time were so impressed.
It's a really nice idea if you are celebrating a birthday or want to make something
special for a loved one.

Take care friends - back tomorrow.

Yum - a Spellbinder layer sandwich. The tag is great. I would never have come up with the idea of putting a layer behind the piece.
