This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called "My Precious" and we want everyone to use something special, that you actually never wanted to use it.
Imagine Crafts, that have this reflective layer, if you are staring at it for too long, almost makes you dizzy. They come in several patterns - this one is Taffeta. I got them some time ago - they look so cool and they were quite expensive, so I just took them out from time to time, looked at them and then put them back.
But I did it - cut into them and used them. I used Adirondack alcohol ink in Lettuce to color the main panel and a Cranberry one for the red flower. Looks better in real life, since you can see how the light reflects of it.
You can cut and emboss the sheets in your die cutting machine, but I think they meant with the big dies, since I had a hard time using Thinlits on the flower.
The dies are from the new Botanical blooms set from Stampin Up, Polka dot strip and sentiment are from SU too.
