More bits and bobs!

Hello. I hope you are having a good day. I have a card and a brooch to show you today. I've used one of Tonic's dies to cut out the flowers for this hydrangea floret...what do you think?

My mum loves do I....talking of which..I cannot wait for our new house to get built so we can start planting up the garden.

My other make today is this paper, glitter and resin brooch...also made with Tonic's flower dies. I layered about 8 layers of card and glue to make this. The top glitter layer has been cut from home-made glitter card. I used the daisy die to cut out the centre of the pink flower, then cut a daisy from gold and dropped it into the space. That way it is inlaid into the design. I made the dragonfly box in a previous post in a similar way...except I had to save all the tiny black bits I had cut out from the wings and glue them was a lot more fiddly.

I always like to back my paper brooches with felt to hid the glued on brooch pin and give a more professional finish. The die cut through felt no bother at , a felt flower brooch will be coming up soon too I think.
Have a great day.
