Delicious Doodles - Something New!

Over at Delicious Doodles, to celebrate the New Year, the challenge is to "something new" - either to try a new technique or use something new!

Oh I did find this hard!  And I went and did something I should never do....I looked at what my other teamies had made.....bad idea!  There are some seriously fabby things over there...which, of course, made me panic!

 I had in mind that I would like to make a set - of some shape or form!  So, in my usual organised way, I chose an image, printed it out in a couple of different sizes and then....stared at it!
 Then I remembered a technique I wanted to try - embossing (yes I know I have done this before) but then using pigment mineral thingies over the top - to make it sheeny shiny!

This is the notepad and pen set. 

The inside of the notepad and pen set - and a little box - the flower has a centre which says "my favourite things" - same on the notepad.  
 And that little lot, with the card - which I didnt take a close-up of but is in the top picture on the right - left me with one image!  Well, waste not want not...I made a little bookmark to complete the set.

This is a closeup of the strip - shiny.

Please do pop over to Delicious Doodles and join in our challenge - you can win some rather nice images!

Thanks for popping over today!
