I did finish off the small picture frame, I bought the cosmic shimmer powders from CnC, and thought that the orange would go perfectly on the frame. Well the powders arrived today and yep, the orange did the trick. Very happy with this, I took my time with it, just to make sure I got it right. So one frame done, two to go.
So I had a happy afternoon playing with everything. I will be a bit more creative tomorrow, just wanted to finish the frame, and then do some cutting, and stamping. I find that its best to get the stamps going so to speak before trying to use them on a piece. Same with the dies, the first cut is usually tricky, though it wasn't in this case. Was talking to the assistant and she said she'd found the spellbinders to be the most awkward, I've only got a couple and one is very detailed so I expected it to be a bit tricky. But I am loving my calibur, no more need for shims, or faffing around, nope it just cuts, then embosses. And more cutting machine companies could follow Calibur with the idea of giving you all the boards and tan mat. I thought I may still use the bug, but it is now just on the shelf, so think it can now go on ebay.
I feel better for a restful day, though the back is definitely dodgy, getting sharp pains and a lot of pain in my right leg, it does not bode well.
All for now, thanks for stopping by
