Crystal Marquetry Tulip

Hello all, I'm properly back. Working with Michelle's ( MJM Design Studios ) Lilies and Light Collection was a real treat for me. Being so versatile, her images can be used across the board. There really is something for everyone. Not just a few elements either, the triple CD collection is jam packed with everything you could possibly need to create a multitude of projects. Today's project also used the Wonder Crystals from Be Creative's Justin and Gordon, along with the Wonder Sheets.

To start I selected the design, then printed it directly onto the Wonder Sheet. I peeled the backing off and secured it to a piece of 250 gsm card.

Next, the individual pieces were cut out carefully.

Each element of the design was then covered with Wonder Crystals from the extensive colour palette from Be Creative, then heat embossed.

Once cool, they were arranged and secured using Collall Tacky glue from Crafters Companion.

To show off the design, it was mounted onto a double sided pearl black card. I used another coordinating image from the collection to create an insert.

Here is the finished card.

I do hope you like it and the step by step. It's nice to be back with you. I have really missed you all. Much more to
