what can you do with all that mirri board ?

Well as i said the other day, I want to use up all those scraps. One of the things i have that i hardly ever use is mirri borard. So today i decided to try using some.

I cut an atc sized piece of gold mirri board
I took a piece of sandpaper and rubbed gently to distress
I pressed reddish brown ink to the whole thing colouring the revealed white bits and changing the tone of the gold to copper as the scratches took on the ink
I then added torn paper edged with the same ink
added my images
added my heart ( This is a digital one i designed ages ago )

I have called the atc 'He brought me flowers'

This is lovely! Another idea for mirri card is to put Stazon over it - it makes it look a bit more grungy

June!!! I just love it! I keep on telling myself that I should start trying to create a bit.. I really need a kick in the butt!

What a great idea, June. I have mirri board I bought when I first started crafting and rarely use it now. Too create and craft tv for me ;-) Now I know it won't go to waste.

Hi June, Glad you are felling better and thanks for the update, will be thinking of you all.
As for the pictures, feel free to use as you wish. I was very pleased with them and thought they would work well in different styles, will be great to see what you come up with, and anyone else who is interested.
