Hello once more Dear Ones
I put aside some time last night to just play around and guess what? Yes, I made another card. Again, it's bright and colourful. And it proved not to be as easy as I first hoped it might be to piece together. However, having tried it, the next time, I'll go about it differently.
It began life as a Lil Inker Die - Pieced Chevrons. Now I have to admit to being a tad wasteful and actually cutting out from eight sheets of card, full size. I realise now in hindsight that I should have cut out thin strips and laid them over the die instead. Just wide enough to cut one line of chevrons.
How do I know this? Well although the pieces all look the same shape and size, they aren't. The card doesn't stand up to scrutiny as the pieces didn't always fit back in perfectly.
Well, you live and learn. I have a few more of these background dies to play with, so I could do with fine tuning how I go about using them.
But before I pick up a sheet of card again, I really need to finish off a project I'm currently working on (or should that be playing?), involving wool. And no it isn't knitting. :D
