Hullo there everyone! thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers - all really appreciated! and mending impatiently still! another two weeks and go back to Opthamologist. I will be able to get new glasses then which will be great.
As these are pre-cut they make life much easier! this one is lovely.
Use 3D mounts to layer up the layers starting from the bottom, making sure the shaping is covering the right areas of layer underneath.
Now is confession time - I attached this lovely 3D rose to the beautiful frame which comes with the pack and I was using glossy accents to give it the rose some highlight..
...and splot! it blobbed on the wrong spot and wrecked the frame, it curled up.
I should have used Gloss Kote with brush as I did on the other one in this set!
I put it to one side to dry and think about it for a while, this is what resulted..
Cut around dried outline of the 3D rose.
Did test run first on scrap paper to see if this worked. Took embossed gold card and carefully cut around the edge of Lace Rozette to give a flat frame to mount the 3D rose. Mount cut rose with double sided tape.
Cut a piece of blush coloured card to size. Emboss with cArt-us Trendy Braid embossing folder and slightly distress surface to make pattern pop. (Love this folder - weave folders are really versatile).
