To an "Old Fossil"...

Hi Blogland, Just wanted to share with you the last couple of cards I have made for our Spellbinders Demo Day Tomorrow..(Saturday 28th May 2012 9am - 2pm).
Here is the first one.. I'm sure, like lots of you, you'd like to get the most out of a product. Perhaps above and beyond it's intended use?
Well, this project started life as 3 cut outs from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossom Die Cut Set (S5-086). Yes, when "Quilled" they do make fantastic Flowers, but when left un-Quilled, do you see a Fossil too?? Way to get additional use out of a die eh!! And also perhaps a Masculine project from a potential Feminine die also??
I used the cut out shapes as a "Mask" on some Acetate. Adding a few different Mica Powders to achieve the effect of Fossils trapped in some rock.
To add even more effect to my project. I embossed a piece of Candy Core card stock using the Spellbinder M-Bossibilitie Folder Sea Beauty (ES-007).
Adding a printed sentiment to finish the project.
You'll find that the demo has a slight nautical theme to it, which can work so well for masculine card projects.. On this card I have used some more Mica Powders to create the background for my sentiment to sit on and also some shells from the Lea'bilitie set, Waves & Sea Shells... So, if you are visiting us tomorrow, I'll see you there... Thanks for checking us out. See you soon. Andy..
