I used a Sue Wilson tutorial to create a patchwork effect card. Very different for me but I liked it and the colours matched the wedding colours too.

A little trip WAY out of my comfort zone today.
With thanks to the help of Tracey, Lalkygirl, I ventured into the world of mixed media last Saturday!
I turned up at hers with the box above and did panic half way through when I had this...
...but I love the end result! Awaiting patiently now for my Gesso to arrive - oh and some waxes, and some mica sprays, and some new dies, and some mebellishments...

So being brave and sharing with you my first go at decorating an MDF shape. I stuck within my comfort zone with choosing how to decorate it as I usedd a Polkadoodles digi kit - Winnie in Wonderland. That way if it all went wrong, I hadn't wasted anything and could just print another (luckily as that is exactly what happened!)
I printed the backing paper and attached to the large heart. I then printed the Queen onto paper, cut her out and used decoupage glue to adhere her to the heart itself. I printed the grey paper and cut out some swirls and glued these down. I then printed a co-ordinating paper onto some thin card, turned it over and printed the back to match so the flowers would be red both sides and cut out and formed the flowers using a Spellbinders die. Some foliage from Sue Wilson dies and a few playing card embellishments from the digi kit finished it all off.
I still need to find a ribbon that I'm happy with so that I can hang it.
I am entering it into the Polkadoodles Challenge.

I needed a quick and simple card - no FUSS! Out came the Scandinavian dies from Sue Wilson. I liked the smallest die making a patterned aperture to the card but still need to work on my flower making. I haven't quite got the leaves working for me yet!

I wanted to offer a choice for my crafty gathering on Saturday so couldn't resist making another framed gatefold card using Polkadoodles' Winnie in Wonderland kit. I think three choices are enough for now although I am looking at Tweedledum and Tweedledee and thinking I NEED to make something with them!!!
