Feeding the ducks ....
down at the 'Ducky Park'.
Hi, Deb with you again today. Not long ago we had our son and grandson visit. The children have always enjoyed one of our local parks on the river and the grandchildren are no different. This young man, though, thought he should have the bread to eat and not the ducks!
If you like the glossy look on your chipboards, another finish to use is embossing powder. I have inked with pigment ink and then embossed using the same color powder. This gives a lovely solid color. To get the super high gloss on this one I have sprinkled it liberally with more powder after heating and melting the previous layer. You can build it up to the thickness you want.

I was on a bit of a circle theme this day, as well as stitching. It was Moo's birthday her Auntie made her a cake.
I used something I don't use much for the finish on this title - paper! This is much easier with a simpler design unless you cheat and cut it to the same pattern at the title using the laser. The same effect can be achieved by tracing the title onto the paper and cutting out. Make sure you do this on the back and reverse the wording. That way your tracing lines don't need to be erased. Once cut out, glue to the chipboard and allow to dry. Using a sharp knife and working from the back, carefully cut around the edges to trim them. Alternatively, you can apply glue to the chipboard front, stick it onto the paper back and wait until dry. Cut carefully around the chipboard.
