Feathered Friend


Something different today, I’ve used one of the new Shape Art templates from Noor! Design for my card. Do you remember those Bookatrix boards we all went crazy for years ago?  Geez I wore mine out lol.  This new template is so much quicker and easier to use that’s for sure.

The paper is one sided so I inked the corner backs before distressing and curling them.  I didn’t glitter the edges until the page was adhered in place.


LOVE this gorgeous butterfly which is from the Open Heart die.  It’s a good size and looks so pretty doubled up and finished off with pearls.  The wild curly rose started it’s life out white, so I spritzed it with diluted peach re-inker to get the colour to match the rest of the roses.



And my little feathered friend.  I was a bit worried that using an oval die would lose some of the detail of the picture, but actually I think it enhances the little robin.


I’ll be back in a couple of days with yet more candy Smile

  7. Just been sorting my craft out today and I came across a book a trix and serveral of the other boards put them to one side not knowing wether I would use them again and here I am checking out your blog and it looks like the shaped cards are obviously coming back around again but maybe I ought to try the noor template instead if it's easier to use as I must admit I did sometimes get a bit frustrated with the boards lol beautiful card I love the sweet robin xx
