As promised, here is sneaky peek number 2.
This is the second sample I made and, I have to be honest, it took me over 2 hours to make!
What with deciding on dies, then actually cutting them (there's a fair few!), then deciding on the colour theme and what not,.. you know the drill ha ha
I have to say, too, that I love the end result, I wish you could all see it in 'real life' as the photos just don't do it justice...
You'll probably notice that the oval frame (featuring the new stitched effect as the other frames in this collection), has the double pierced oval die as a matt, but, had I actually cut the stamp out using the dies, the piercing would be on the outside of my stamp,.. this was such a big thing for me to get right too as I didn't want the piercing of the die to spoil the stitching of my stamp (Creative Expressions love my 'particularness' (new word!) ha ha
This is quite a big card (23cm x 17cm) and there are so many layers it weighs a tonne, so, if you replicate this (happy for you to do so!), just miss out a layer or two (or stick them flat instead of using foam tape (as I do)
Here is what I used (with links to them on my www in case you 'need' them)
