Q is for Quads

 Good Morning everyone, another week passed by - where are they going?

So its time for a new challenge over at Alphabet Challenge  the theme for the next fortnight is 

Use 4 of something

I went for 4 background panels.

I had actually die cut the panels from left over off cuts of pearlised cardstock.  I then dry embossed the squares with a circle embossing folder.  I then coloured them with a mix of aqua tints in green, blue and purple.  The pearl of the card still shows through the inks really well.  I added the inks to a mat, sprayed with water and dipped the card into it. 

I mounted the panels onto silver mirror card  (hard to get a decent photo of the silver), and mounted onto a 6x6 white cardblank.  I die cut the Christmas sentiment from silver mirror card, the circle that comes out the middle i decided to emboss and glue back in.  This i mounted onto a die cut circle and then over the background panels.

Die cut a white snowflake, added a very blingy dazzler to finish.

This one was made in the same way but i had die cut the left over pearl card into rectangle panels instead.  Finished card is 5x7"

Items Used:

MFT Christmas sentiment die
MFT stitched rectangle die set
Wonky stitched square die
Wonk stitched circle die
Poppystamps Marius Stitched snowflake die
Sizzix circle embossing folder
CraftUk Ltd white cardstock
Silver mirri card
Spectrum Noir aqua tints
