Coneing it!

Pine coneing it that is....LOL I finally got round to using Tim's new Tattered Pine Cone die, and following his instructions here, I made my first one! I actually used Kraft Glassine paper, and because I am mean, I used an envelope which are far cheaper and will open up nicely. I didn't worry about the creases because I scrunched up the paper after I had die cut it. Lots of Perfect Pearls Perfect Pearl mist, and dried immediately so you get the droplets forming into nice little blobs of mica:)

More rosettes, ( on a rosette kick right now!), and I discovered by accident that if you stamp with Stazon Metallic in Platinum first and ink over in Archival you get a shadowy effect..nice!

Hoping the photos do it justice.
I must admit I now have a little bit of time to play with ideas, and hoping to blog most days at least for the moment! LOL
Have a very creative day

That is really lovely. I bet it glistens more in real life. Must have a go at making a cone.

Just beautiful! Love the look of the cone with the glassine! I haven't mastered the cone yet, mine look like flowers! A two in one die I guess!! :)

Stunning! What a great idea the stazon thing is. Might have to try that once I've made enough room to get back into my craft room!
