Happy Tuesday Morning to you all, and I hope you all had a happy and peaceful Easter break, I have to say I had a fab one. I got to see my Claire & Craig and their respective partners on Saturday, my sister on Sunday and crafting on Monday, how lucky am I.
With this card I had another go of the fire & ice Technique. It wasn't the best technique when you have one of the little kitties in the room. I was trying to mix a few of the pots of gilding flakes as I wanted it to match the main colour of the card. Bubble saw a few flakes moving on the desk and thought she would take a closer look. When she jumped onto my table it circulated air that then made the flakes float even more. Well that was it it all happened so fast, her paws and her nose were in my gilding flakes before I could even reach for the lids. I remembered to close the patio door turn the ceiling fan off but didn't look for kitties. She was escorted out of my room with flakes on her whiskers, tail and paws, she did look cute though and she did have fun. I just gathered up the flakes that she played with and this is the result. I couldn't bring myself to throw them away and start again. I think Bubble did quite well.
Ramble finished, I hope you like this weeks make for Creative Expressions.

First I started by Matt and layering Black and the orange pearl card and then embossed with bed of roses EF. The 2nd matt & layering I used White, Black & Orange pearl and emboss the orange card again and used strips of sticky pads for dimension. I stamped 2 lots of Scribble rose stamp with gilding flake glue and added gilding flakes. Then cut into 4 identical strips. I covered each strip with double sided sticky sheets and then covered with iced snow glitter. I then made a square with the 4 strips, added sticky pads to the back and attached to card for more dimension. I made the focal point with 4 different dies and used different levels of sticky strips and pads for dimension and added down into the square. I made a rose and coloured it wild honey and drew veins on it with a paint brush added the leaves, just to finish it off I put a few drops of Glossy Accents for dew drops,
and Et Voila!. Really hope you like this one too.
