Spellbinders Victorian Medallion One, feeling a bit Moroccan angel.

Hello everybody and welcome to new followers and the faithful.
Day 2 of my new Spellbinders die and a project as a
 Elliott's Angel for;
Yesterday was white on white and today is very colourful and i think a Moroccan feel.
It shows how different colours look so different and you can thread ribbon though the centre.

All the layers are white card coloured with glitter paints, blended.
Shaped the die cut with a ball tool to give it raised areas.
Threaded the ribbon in the centre and added a dazzler.

The die is Spellbinders Victorian Medallion One. Which can be found at;
Please visit the online shop, there are really good prices on Spellbinders, new and pre loved. Spellbinders are more than just dies they have embossing folders, stamps, lace and ribbons, which i will be sharing over the next few months, its worth a browse you can find different products even my new foam pads which i just love (if you can love a 3D foam pads) from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™.

Thank you so much for visiting today and i hope you like my project. xx

Spellbinders Victorian Medallion One, white on white.

Hi everybody,
Today is my first Spellbinders project as an Elliott's Angel.
I've kept it simple as the die does all the work. Pearl card thats just been shaped with a ball tool
 and mat, layered up with the base cut die and a lace flower to finish.
The base card is a round card that has sparkle medium sponged to glitter and give texture.

Spellbinders Victorian Medallion One.
You can find this die and many others at;
Also there is an Autumn sale with bargain Spellbinders dies.

 Its such an elegant die and so versatile. 
I think it could be used all year, it could pass for a snowflake too, 
with a christmas sentiment in the centre 
I hope you like my first project, please pop back tomorrow to see this die look a bit different.
Thank you for visiting.xx

Hi, it was wet all day today, but i did manage to take some photos of Saturdays canvas.
Had a great day with Fran from Prima at Pink Tulip in Warwickshire.

Had great fun blowing the paint with a straw to achieve the effect. 

Love the leaves with feathers attached.

so much texture

I was going to do browns and gold canvas but decided to be bold and bright.

Rosie likes my canvas but wonders why she is not on it.

Hope you like the canvas .
