What an exciting day it has been, I finally did something wonderful with this wonderful machine. I have had it for two and a half months and have been converting and making files for it ever since. Have a nice little collection and have been doing bits and pieces and making all my flowers on it, but did not really have anything that was a start to finish project on there yes. Well today I do. Yes I still used a couple of dies, but the rest is all Brother Scan N Cut. Very proud of myself.
Yes a pop up box card with loads of flowers and butterflies of course! All in blues. The panels are all layered with Bazzil cardstock and a patterned paper.
The white flowers have been inked with Ranger Distress ink Shaded Lilac (lovely colour). I really am liking using the Distress inks for shading and blending.
On the top of the box I have used some upright cardstock attached to the cross sections, but find this is not really enough to support a lot of decorating, so I use strips of clear plastic (acetate or transparencies to attach to the supports to extend higher and to support the tops of the swirls and the butterflies. Invisible support, how clever is that?
Well as you can see I am starting to get more use from my ‘Baby Brother’ as I call this toy. He is really very clever and you will get to see more from his blades in the coming posts.
Hope you like todays project.
