Fuchsia in Domed Window die and CREATE AND CRAFT NEWS

Thanks for all your good wishes! My eye surgery went well but I can only use the computer for short bursts so this will be quick.

For this card I stamped one of the Pick of the Bunch Fuchsia stamps onto white card, then die cut it with the Domed Window die, coloured with Promarkers (Aqua, Duck Egg, Turquoise,Cinnamon and Cocoa) and then embossed it. After that I raised the 4 square pieces onto 3D foam square from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  and mounted the whole thing onto a Tonic Studios Doily Square die cut.

The embossing folder is Tied Together by Creative Expressions .

The little panel down the side was punched with the Tonic Studios Daisy Border2 punch and I've added some embroidery thread around the edge and a length of ribbon and bow.

For the first time ever, Create and Craft will be doing live broadcasts form CHA in California this weekend ....and Tonic Studios will be taking part!!
