More MCS sneak peeks.....

....hope I dont post ones I have already done, lol.
So bearing in mind that these are kits, here is the Antique Window aperture card kit, by MCS, which you will be able to get from QVC on Tuesday, as part of the TSV shows.
The one I have shown before was the Nature range, where I removed the foiled frame from the topper and placed it on the outside of the card. This time, I made a feature of the window aperture by using one of the Diecut Birdcages, from a Previous Kit by MCS, Quintessential Country Carden. The Paperstash Kits are very good quality Card bases, and take rough handling with ease, so the Bird Cage was distressed with Chipped Sapphire, and a Touch of Black Soot, to darken it. Then took spme Navy organza Ribbon and made a double bow, then heated it with the heat gun to crinkle it. Acetate was placed behind the window with thin DST.
Inside the card I used some coredinations cardstock, and embossed it using a Touch of Mica Mask. Then sanded it back, and distressed it with the same mix of distress ink I had used on the frame. The coredinations was trimmed to fit, then mounted on some Gold Mirri, as that is the colour of the foiling on the topper, which was mounted on the card base with some foam pads. then I re-enforced the pre scored fold lines on the card base,  as it is scored with a spine, to allow dimension within the aperture.
So another card I like, lol, I was going to give this to my Dad, lol, as he's quite a fan of books like the Difference Engine by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, one of the few Steam Punk books I know of, but then he is a Fan of both Technology, and Steam, Having hand-built a 22' Steam Launch in his Garage, lol
Right another of my eviction Cards.......... This is what was left over from My last set of Sneak Peeks for MCS, firstly they are hard to photograph, being Mirri based, and printed on top, and secondly, Acetate can be a pain, especially in this weather, lol, Natural daylight being at a premium!
So this is using 2 of the bits I got sent, the Beautiful acetate, and one remaining topper. the topper was fixed to the acetate with DST, and then the Acetate was fixed to a Black Card base with some Rivets, okay, yes I am in a Riveting phase at the moment, but the are good for Fixing things without glue or DST showing. These Rivets are actually Friskars decorative Rivets, an assortment of snowflakes, Christmas trees, and Stars.

So thats it for now, as I am facing another short eviction, while some MORE shelves are added, lol

hope you'll pop back later, and see more, xx
