Hello Everyone. I hope that you are well and enjoying some sunshine, even it is still mighty cold out there. Thank you for popping in I hope you like what you see and if able to leave a comment, I value your feedback. Sorry I'm a little late post this but I've been out for lunch with my daughter! There is no minilotty yet ANG. I hope, bless her, that she won't have to wait much longer.
ERIKA, you asked how I made the bed ends on my cake. I drew a grid and laid Bakewell paper over the top and piped royal icing with tragacanth added. Tragacanth is an ingredient available from chemists which hardens the royal icing, making it a little "stronger". I have to say I probably made about 4 of each to account for breakages. The air probably turned a little blue as I probably broke a couple adhering them to the cake!
I was asked to make a card for a friend to give away. I didn't have any brief (I try and use their hobbies, colours etc if known), so I felt a little stumped at first. I knew her approximate age and went with an idea that I knew my daughter/daughter in law would like.
7x7 card blank
Serif background and "dress"
Tattered Lace - pearl flourishes die (one of my latest buys)
Sue Wilson Austrian tag die for sentiment
X-cut haberdashery dress form
I've added my purchases from Ally Pally, the CE black gloss card is amazing - black on both sides so no white core, 2 Perspective die sets from Sue Wilson - love 'em! some glue and die storage, some CE gilding polishes and some Nuvo crystal drops
