Beautiful Butterflies

Hi All!
Just thought I'd share another of my makes that you may have seen Fiona Clayton wearing on Hochanda yesterday.
This butterfly brooch uses the new Mixed Media dies from Crafter's Companion to cut through mount board. I then stamped and inked my butterfly, before adding crystal embossing powder!
I even made a matching box...

Hope you like it...I had lots of fun creating it! xx

Mixed Media Gifts

Afternoon All!
Tonight sees the lovely Fiona Clayton on Hochanda with the fabulous Gemini machine. Alongside it she is showcasing the Mixed Media dies which are absolutely brilliant...they cut through so many materials with ease.
Here are just some of the samples I made using the dies through mount board, easily available in craft shops and picture framers...and usually quite tricky to cut through...but not with the Gemini and the Mixed Media dies!

I made some jewellery pendants...stamping and colouring with inks, then enamelling them with embossing powder. I even added them to cards to make them match my gifts.

In other colours too!

Hope you like them xx
