Playing some more with the 'Shimmering Watercolours' Hunky Dory win from QCME here - and once again l almost lost the will to live. It's a really lovely prize but they didn't include any instructions on making the box part that sits behind the scalloped frame - almost made a big boo-boo but thankfully realised what I was about to do wrong just in time.The kit came with four of these cards which stand up on little easels at the back - first two:
Even avoiding my potential boo-boo, I had trouble with the first one, the box front 'lip' which the die cut foiled front sticks onto is a gnat's whisker larger than the widest cut out on the filed front - no matter how much you juggle it around. I learned from that and trimmed a sliver from each side of the next 'box' before assembling it!
I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth but wouldn't you think that the measurements would be fit for purpose when things are sold in kit form?
Oooer, I'm such a big kid too - and our eagle eyed Darnell spotted it on Monday. Finally got round to adding a watermark to piccies - and now spend ages moving it round the photo in 'Gimp' before making my mind up. I got the watermarks from Karen Giron and they're $2 per design - a snip I thought - go and peek here. Super fast service - I think Karen must have done them within just a few hours, and that's with a time difference too!
