Hard, Plastic Things

torsdag 14 juni 2012

Hello and welcome back to my blog!
Today I have a slightly different cards to display. Like so many others (I think anyway), I have things laying around in boxes that I do not really know what to do with, and they will be lying there.
Now I do not like throwing things that I once bought. So now I finally used the strange, hard plastic things from Heidi Grace Designs, they have now ended up on a card.

I wanted the text to be on the figures but since it is plastic, I did not know how to get it to adhere. In the end, I simply used embossing powder and heated in. The plastic was so thick that it survived the heat pretty well.

I tried to put some text paper behind some of the figures but I did not think it got so good.
In order to give it a bit more dimension and not so flat, I tried to get the flowers to stand up, by not pressing down the brads all the way down through the sheet.

 I used Flowers of Spring paper from Bildmålarna.
The stamps are at least as old as the plastic stuff so I really do not know who produced them, and I have not used them for a long, long, long time.

So this is what I am sharing today, next time it will be something completely different, I promise, no plastic in any case:)
Hugs, Birgit
