We've had no broadband since Wednesday!! There's something wrong with the mast in our area. It seems to be taking forever to fix. I had to come to my mom's house to do some scheduled blog posts. SO here's one of the cards I did during the week. I love the color challenge this week at CR84FN, very sunny colors!
I was in a bit of an experimental mood and the photo of the beeswax reminded me I had some sheets of beeswax in my craft box, SO.... I made some beeswax flowers!!
I used the Sizzix Tattered Florals die to cut out the flowers, it worked well but I tried it with some Spellbinders dies and it didn't work so well, beeswax pancakes!! The wax flowers were easy to shape with the heat of my hands. I had a yellow crystal brad that matched pretty well. I added some corrugated cardboard rubbed with white ink for the leaves.
The label is from Very Vintage Labels 18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The fabulous sentiment is from the Friend of Mine stamp set from The Craft's Meow designed by Claire Brennan. I used the butterfly from the same set to stamp the background, I embossed it in white.
I made a matching, slightly bigger (too big for a card!) flower, I could use it to decorate a gift to go with the card.
I did have fun playing!! : ) I love how they're translucent. So pretty. Ok, I've a few more blog posts to do!! I'll be glad when the broadband is back working.
