Hi everyone , what a gloomy day, rain rain rain,oh well makes a good excuse for stopping in and getting inky......
I have tried something different today for my challenge card first of all I have used oil pastel pencils to colour with and also I have used some fusible film ( now  there's a funny story)....I will share.....
I would like to enter my card in these challenge...
Quixotic challenge - monochromatic
Cupcake craft challenge - spring/easter with chocolate colour
Crafty Angels - paper piecing (fusible film) does this count?

Here is the cute Tilda before I added the fusible film...

here she is with the film...

To use thde fusible film you need to ink up your image I used stazon as it dries quickly and dosen't slip, I then cut three sheets of film the same size just big enough to cover the stamp. With you inked stamp face up lay the three sheets on top of your stamp and cover with a piece of parchment and then iron over it with a warm iron, you can see through the parchment when its ready as the ink will be visible. And then just cut out the pieces you need and add to your image, I stuck my film to the image with tiny bits of glossy accents around the edge.
Hope the instructions are clear enough, if not let me know.

The funny
When I first heard about the fusible film a few years ago it was also known as fantasy film, so I thought I would look it up on the internet to see what you could do with it, so I searched for fantasy film and got a whole different subject!!!!.......yeah you with good job I didn't ask one of the kids to look for it......!!!

Enough of my waffle and thank you for popping over again, I really do appreciate it.
