Passion for Promarkers - To Die For Challenge

Hi there, it's time for our new challenge at Passion For Promarkers, with a great challenge chosen by our wonderfully talented Nic, which is to use at least one die or punch,  I love using punches and dies so it wasn't too much of a hardship!

I've used one of Mo Manning's super cute Fairy Babies - Fairy Needle - which you can find here in Mo's store.  Those in the know  will also spot the use of my new favourite crafting technique/embellishment/whatever you want to call it - Frantage embossing!    

I cut out  a number of circles with some punches and the added some Aged Silver Frantage Powder to get this gorgeous liquidy, molten effect.  I especially love the effect on the wooden heart button below with all the  texture and colour.
For my flower bouquet, I've used some yummy new gypsophila and floral sprays from The Ribbon Girl - they looked just divine when they came - all packaged up so prettily!  My vintage seam binding is also from The Ribbon girl

Apart from my circle  punches, I used the Tim Holtz On The Edge Sewing and Doily dies, and I cut out my image with a Sizzix tab die. I also frantaged a floral lacy edged border stamp  which you can just see underneath the circle flower.
You can hardly see my papers now, but they were some gorgeous freebie ones from a magazine recently!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy who are offering the lucky winner one of their yummy stamps!

Check out the rest of Team One's wonderful creations here and I hope you will be inspired to play along with us this week!
