Hope you're all ok? I'm fine but took a day out yesterday to do a bit of thinking and stuff.
It's a beautiful, sunny day here, so hope you're all getting some of it too. I can't believe how mild it is.
Anyway...I've cracked it! I'm so chuffed with myself. I adore my lacy easels but wanted something a little bitter and I've done it. This one is still small for most people (I like smaller cards) but it's bigger than my other lacy easels as the die measures approx 5"...so much bigger!
Woohoo...isn't it lovely? And I can get away with saying that as I didn't design the die or the artwork, lol.
I've used the Cheery Lynn English Tea Party die which I bought from Joanna Sheen and it can be found here
It's not a quick process and you do need to be patient but it's clearly doable and I think it's beautiful and so, so delicate. It fits in perfectly with the gorgeous Faye Whittaker image I have chosen (by Joanna Sheen and also available on her site).
The only thing I don't like about this card is the ribbon, which isn't quite the right blue. I did have the perfect blue but it was too stiff to make a nice small bow from, so I've put this one on just because I couldn't wait to take the photo and get it on here! So the bow has now been removed and will be replaced when I raid the craft shop for more ribbon. This one is pinched from a packet of Me To You bows.
And that's it. This card - or the ability to do it now - has really made my day. Thank you very much Cheery Lynn!
Hope you like it.
