Hello, Apple Blossom have just launched a new collection- Floral Frames Collection by Kay Whittaker and I’ve had great fun making a few projects with Rose Butterfly Die Set and Rose Butterfly Floral Wrap Die Set from the collection. They can all be found on the Craft Stash.co.uk site. I made this pillow box and decorated it white and gold butterflies with a matching wrap.
This DL card was made from both dies from the Rose Butterfly Floral Wrap Die Set glued together and treated with sliver gliding wax, matted onto purple and silver card. The butterfly and sentiment( Apple Blossom die) treated the same way, the butterfly was backed in purple card and a tassel attached.
The background was made from a number of Rose frames cut up and layered in strips across the canvas, then panted with gesso and sprayed with Boysenberry Color Bloom spray(Prima) and water. A sheet of card was painted with dilute Boysenberry Color Bloom and Porcelain Luscious powder(IndigoBlu), white roses from the wrap die and black butterflies were glued to it and cut out. The leaves were constructed from green card and the sentiments (Creative Dies) cut from black card all the elements where layered with silicone glue.
Can’t believe it’s a year since my first show on Hochanda with Apple Blossom Dies, where dose the time go!
Take care, Kay xx
