Colour My World



Hello,  and as always, thanks for calling in.

I bought a couple of dies in the Country View Crafts Advent Sale in December and this is my first play with the TH Mini Globe.
I cut the globe from a textured silver card and coloured with Alcohol inks.  I also cut a base circle and coloured that with Salty Ocean DI.
For the background I used Transparent texture paste through a stencil and when dry, I used Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord inks to colour my base card.  My sentiment was computer generated, and with those words, I was able to add in a little floral spray.

I am entering this at

Well, that's it for today, I need to get my thinking cap on and knuckle down to some DT work!

This is lovely Avril and the sentiment is just perfect with your card. I bet you'll get plenty of use out of the globe die for making masculine cards and for multi media too. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

I've got the larger version of this die myself and can truly say I would never have come up with this idea of mixing it with flowers, but so love how that turned out,
