Anyways they were clearing out Letterpress's :O and accessories so I snapped one up! I also got some inks cards and envelopes for letterpressing. The letterpress papers expensive and hard to buy here so I am going to cannibalise the envelopes as card fronts :) Best of all my sis bought it for me for my birthday :)
Little Ray Of Sunshine by Axiom. I watched an interview with Brian Cadd recently and when asked about the song he replied that the song was about the little girl of some friends who were going through a bitter break up. You can read what he said here. The group have never revealed who she is and I think it takes a whole lot of integrity to keep that secret over 40 years! The words and pins are from the Baby Letterpress plates. I ran the letterpress through the cuttlebug, it didn't go all the way through I had too run it back the opposite way... Anyone else had this happen?
Next I chose an image from the Peter Rabbit stamp set made by Leisure. I chose the mother and babies image and coloured it with Copics. I then die cut the image with Nesting circles by Lifestyle Crafts.
I then used copics to colour the edges of some I am Roses and some bead string to co-ordinate with the card. Oh and a butterfly I decided to leave off the card lol . . . I used some glue to adhere the embellies. Wasn't happy with my ribbon/flower placement but the glue dried to fast for me to fix it haha!
PS a quick tip! The gold letterpress ink takes quite a long time to dry.... I didn't realise this and wrecked quite a few by stacking them on top of each other after I thought they were dry enough. Lesson Learned! I imagine the silver would be the same. But I will still use the background. I will just add a raised image to the middle to cover up the words! lol
