Paper Paradise is no more


Well the day has finally arrived. Sue has shut up shop to dedicate time to her own crafting and to spend time with the family.

I made this 4 x 4 just as a little thank you and farewell.

I coloured a piece of acetate using alcohol inks, adding copper and pearl, I then ran it through the cuttlebug in a folder to emboss it. Then I mounted it onto a dark green piece of mount board. Taking my used coke can, I ran it through the cuttlebug using various dies and attached them to the background. This time I remembered to bash the metal with my textured hammer before attaching!!!!

It's not as dark in real life, the lighting isn't great!!
