Faux Pour - Card 10

Faux Pour - Card 9 - Click to enlarge

The centrepiece of the card is created using the Long Stemmed Rose and the Gypsophila dies and the Hello is a Sue Wilson die. You could make a similar design by doing three strips or four circles – just whatever shape takes your fancy.

Here I took one sheet of the faux pour paper (interesting how different the four pieces look despite coming from the same sheet) – anyway I took four pieces and then matted and layered them onto pink mirror card and then some silver.

One tip is when you come to place the four pieces on your card blank, you might like to use something like Pinflair glue gel that gives you time to move the squares slightly to ensure they are completely aligned. I used 2mm foam tape and add its instant grab to the pressure of being on TV I am amazed that I got the squares close to where I wanted them!

There’s so much you can do with these sheets – yes of course card making but also use them like original artwork – you can add glitter to make a geode, pens and stamping to add a special touch, make a clock, frame a sheet, cover a notebook, top with some glaze and just hang on the wall like a canvas. Have fun and no mess!
